In his Letter to a Member of Parliament Francis Grant quotes a letter from ‘the late Dean Swift’. ‘I give it to you’, he says, ‘without the least alteration’. His printing is possibly as faithful as he claims; it certainly retains features of capitalization and spelling that are modernized in other editions of Swift in this period.
