Reading Experience:

From Elizabeth Missing Sewell's Journal, 14 August 1850: 'Ruskin's [italics]Lectures on Architecture and Painting[end italics] which I have been reading, interest and please me immensely. They certainly are dogmatical. They are disfigured by exaggerated tirades against Romanism, but they are full of wonderful thought, and an intense feeling for truth'.
