Reading Experience:

Harriet Countess Granville to her sister, Lady Georgiana Morpeth, from Paris, 5 December 1824: 'It amused me to open a new volume of Mme. Campan's journal at these words: "Tu dois juger si je suis fatiguee, mais je m'etais laissee un peu arrieree, et quand une fois les lettres s'amassent, il faut un jour de sainte colere pour deblayer les tiroirs de mon bureau." It is so exactly the state of my case. I have more than a dozen letters for tomorrow's courier [...] I have paid a number of English visits and have been receiving them three times a week, between two and half-past three.'
