Reading Experience:

'Bentley's puffs in the newspaper (for Jane Scott's "Trevelyan") quite sicken me, all admirable and charming alike, written by his [italics] literary adviser [end italics] you may be sure, just in the same spirit as the puffs of Warren's blacking and Rowland's kalydor. Oh dear! it is a degradation I cannot bear'. [LS is arguing that aristocrats ought not admit to publishing books]
