Elizabeth Barrett : An Essay on Mind with Other Poems

John Kenyon to his distant relative Elizabeth Barrett, on the latter's An Essay on Mind (read in a copy borrowed from Barrett), 12 July 1826: 'I had scarcely quitted you, when I thought that I had been very injudicious, to say the least, to beg your book -- Probably enough, you may not have another in the house. [...] 'Your work has not afforded solitary pleasure -- Mrs Kenyon [wife] has shared it with me, and Mr Philipps is making himself acquainted with it. 'For myself, claiming a cousin-ship in some degree or other, I have read it with pride as well as pleasure [goes on to discuss various pieces and passages further].'
