Evidence:
'Once Laura had the honour of choosing two passages for the father of one of her friends, who had been invited to read and could not, as he said, think of anything likely, not if his life depended upon it. She chose the scene from "The Heart of Midlothian" in which Jeanie Deans is granted an audience by Queen Caroline and the chapter about the Battle of Waterloo from "Vanity Fair"'.
