"Pope's letters arrived today, with amazing speed. And all is well - I can't begin to say how much I value having this correspondence to hand, and in such usable form. Thank you so much for your help, and indeed for making this resource available. I'm sure I'll be back for more."

Dr. Penelope Wilson, University of Cambridge
