The Journal to Stella


Published in part, posthumously, in 1766.

With Preface, Introduction and Notes by George A. Aitken.

This work consists of 65 letters to Swift's friend, Esther Johnson, whom he called Stella and whom he may have secretly married. The letters were written between 1710 and 1713, from various locations in England, and though clearly intended for Stella's eyes, were sometimes addressed to her companion Rebecca Dingley. There is also mention of St. George Ashe, Bishop of Clogher, an old friend who by some accounts secretly married Swift to Stella in 1716.
