ABSTRACT
This article presents information about the sequel "Roxana," by Daniel De Foe. There were at least six different eighteenth-century continuations of Roxana. The first in date that is known comes in a quarto edition published by Elizabeth Applebee in 1740 under the title "The Fortunate Mistress." The other is Roxana's alarming discovery that her daughter knows of her plan to leave England and has been on the road in front of her, making inquiries about her. It is relevant to say that the second of these incidents is a valuable addition to the 1745 version, the corresponding pages in, which are very tedious and mainly concerned with the couple's meals and dealings with innkeepers.
