ANON. Sophia (1818)
Monthly Review, 2nd ser. 88 (Mar 1819): 329.
A dull tale of revolting villainy, in which scenes of vice are
displayed as warnings to inexperienced females, whose safety would
be greater in foregoing than in receiving such instruction. The
book contains also many improbabilities, some passages which evince
great ignorance of modern usages, and some erroneous grammar; as
in vol. i. p. 77., ‘Sophia had began speaking;’
—p. 181., ‘she has not spoke,’ &c.
