Evidence:
Harriet, Countess Granville, to her sister Lady Georgiana Morpeth, 29 September 1815: '"Fazio,' the new tragedy, is in parts very fine and in others as bad. It is written by a young Mr. Milman, son to the physician. It is well worth sending for. Some people think it beautiful. Lord Lansdowne brought it to Saltram and said it was one of the finest things he had ever read, so do get it. The woman's character is very interesting.'
