[Catherine Talbot to Elizabeth Carter, 16 October 1768, during a visit to the Cornwall family:] ''We found them here reading Mosheim. They are in the second volume, which we read in the evenings; and I have got the first in my room here studying it with great pleasure.' Catherine Talbot to Elizabeth Carter, 23 October 1768: 'Mosheim has really convinced me that the desart [sic] unsociable system is a very wrong and a false one. In the main he seems a very sensible and candid writer -- now and then we differ, and I grumble over my book.'
