Reading Experience:

Leonard Woolf to Lytton Strachey, 9 April 1901: 'I have been in the wilderness to-day but before I end I must tell you that I did live last week an hour or two -- which being interpreted is that I read The Column by Charles Marriott which if you have not, do. If I were a reviewer I should shout & scream "A New Great Author". But I'm not. Farewell.'
