Reading Experience:

Elizabeth Missing Sewell on support received in the face of criticisms of her novel [italics]Margaret Percival[end italics] for its supposedly Roman Catholic sympathies: 'My one consolation, when criticised, was, and is, that the statement of the historical grounds on which the English Church rests were [sic] privately approved by [...] the Rev. Samuel Rickards, rector of Stowlangtoft, Essex [...] Mr. Rickards also advised me to write a little history of the early Church, which I afterwards did. He saw part of it, and liked it.'
