Evidence:
'A district visitor was delivering tracts among a large meeting of some poor folk to whom she had lately read part of "Enoch Arden." "Thank you ma'am," one old lady said, "but I'd give all I had for that other beautiful tract which you read t'other day (a sentiment which was echoed by the others), it did me a power of good.'
