Elizabeth Barrett to Mary Russell Mitford, 17 June 1839: 'I mean to make an extract of your legal admirations and send them to my brother George who begins his circuits next year as a BARRISTER!! I shall be curious to observe how his enthusiasm for his profession, which actually set him down to read Coke among this exquisite scenery, when he came down with me last year [...] will bear up under the infliction.'
