Reading Experience:

'For once I must think differently from Mr Edgeworth. I have none of the fears that he has for the fate of "Little Plays for Children". Those of Madame de Genlis have always been extremly [sic] successful, altho' not very good, and "Old Poz" has been most successful, and has been acted by many a happy little party'.
