Note 025
From 'The Essay and Modern English Prose' by A.A. Tilley
Published in 'The Cambridge History Of English Literature' (1934 Edition) Volume 8 'The Age Of Dryden'

See Courtenay, u.s. vol. II, p. 110; and ibid. pp. 242-3 as to the protest of lady Giffard against the publication of part III and Swift's angry rejoinder. The whole story of Swift's relations with the Temple family, and, more especially, with lady Giffard, whom he hated, is discussed by Miss Longe, u.s. pp. 179 ff., but belongs to the history of Swift rather than to that of his patron.
