Reading Experience:

Evidence:
George Grote to G. C. Lewis, 16 December 1840: 'I have been reading, and am still reading, B. de St. Hilaire, "De la Logique d'Aristote.' I have been going through several parts of the Analyse which he gives, and comparing it with the original [...] The more I read of Aristotle, the more I am impressed with profound admiration of the reach of thought which his works display. He is, however, excessively difficult, and the process of reading him is slow, almost to tediousness.'
