Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'Colonel Forbes has not in appearance, position and surroundings the least resemblance to his prototype; yet that the character is in the main true was shown to me strangely by the fact that the gentleman who gave me the idea of it came to me after he had read "Katherine Ashton" and owned that Colonel Forbes resembled himself, though no one else ever suggested the likeness.'
