抄録: This paper examines the relationship between a petitioning woman and a wealthy countess with an eye to the use of the language of sensibility in the record of charity. My focus is on the case of Mary Jackson, one claimant of benevolence and care from Georgiana, Countess Spencer. The sheer quantity of letters from Jackson to Spencer is remarkable : between 1782 and 1800 she sent more than one hundred letters, each considerably substantial. In these letters, Jackson developed the language of begging and asking attention into detailed and elaborate narrative of a life story, appealing how she should be thought to deserve compassion. My analysis brings to attention the construction of this self-representation and her idolization of Lady Spencer in her harangue. It also focuses on the contextual forces which fostered the dialogue between this affluent woman and the unfortunate. Lady Spencer's encouragement as well as Jackson's ingenuity and talent in writing was crucial in forming this remarkable relationship between a benefactor and a petitioner.
