Burney, F. (n.d.). Cecilia, Or Memoirs of an Heiress. Retrieved from

The indulgence shewn by the Public to Evelina, which, unpatronized, unaided, and unowned, past through Four Editions in one Year, has encouraged its Author to risk this SECOND attempt. The animation of success is too universally acknowledged, to make the writer of the following sheets dread much censure of temerity; though the precariousness of any power to give pleasure, suppresses all vanity of confidence, and sends Cecilia into the world with scarce more hope, though far more encouragement, than attended her highly-honoured predecessor, Evelina.
