Excerpt from The Works of Tobias Smollett, M.D, Vol. 1 of 8: With Memoirs of His Life; To Which Is Prefixed a View of the Commencement and Progress of Romance
The successful issue of Fielding's works in ten volumes, octavo, is an encouragement to the publishers to bring out in the same form the writings of some of the most renowned of the earlier British novelists; and it is resolved upon that Smollett's shall come next in order, as in the characteristics of his genius he more closely resembles the author of 'Tom Jones' than he does any of the others. The likeness indeed is so striking, that 'Roderick Random' was, on its first appearance, attributed to Fielding by his cousin, Lady Mary Wortley Montague. In a letter to her daughter, the Countess of Bute, she observes, ' Fielding has really a fund of true humour. I guessed "R. Random" to be his, though without his name.'
