The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling (1749)

Book XV.

In which the History Advances about Two Days.

Chapter i.

Too short to need a preface.

There are a set of religious, or rather moral writers, who teach that virtue is the certain road to happiness, and vice to misery, in this world. A very wholesome and comfortable doctrine, and to which we have but one objection, namely, that it is not true.
