Sarah Fielding - Final Years

Final Years

Sarah's sisters died between 1750 and 1751, and Henry died in 1754. Sarah retired from London and moved to a small house just outside Bath. The famous philanthropist Ralph Allen and the similarly famous Elizabeth Montagu (a member of the Blue Stockings Society) gave her some financial aid. In around 1767, the novelist Sarah Scott, sister of Elizabeth Montagu, invited Sarah Fielding to come and live with her in a female utopian community, an attempt to create the utopia described in Millenium Hall, but Sarah declined the invitation. Sarah Fielding died in 1768. There is a memorial plaque to her on the west porch of Bath Abbey.

Famous quotes containing the words years and/or final:

    When Prince William [later King William IV] was at Cork in 1787, an old officer ... dined with him, and happened to say he had been forty years in the service. The Prince with a sneer asked what he had learnt in those forty years. The old gentleman justly offended, said, “Sir, I have learnt, when I am no longer fit to fight, to make as good a retreat as I can” —and walked out of the room.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    It is the nature of aphoristic thinking to be always in a state of concluding; a bid to have the final word is inherent in all powerful phrase-making.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
