Reading Experience:

Eleanor L. Sewell, niece of Elizabeth Missing Sewell, in chapter 20 of [italics]The Autobiography of Elizabeth Missing Sewell[end italics]: 'Among many casual instances [of Elizabeth Missing Sewell's influence] is that of a girl who was detained at the foot of the Lollards' Tower, Lambeth, and showing her impatience of delay, was addressed by a little lady, who was also waiting her turn with a party, and asked to spend the time in learning more about the Lollards and the locality. The girl afterwards saw the lady's name in the visitors' book, was led to read her works and learnt for life the love of study, though she never met Miss Sewell again.'
