Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'When Southey becomes as modest as his predecessor Milton, and publishes his Epics in duodecimo, I will read 'em, - a Guinea a book is somewhat exorbitant, nor have I the opportunity of borrowing the Work. The extracts from it in the Monthly Review, and the short passages in your Watchman seem to me much superior to any thing in his partnership account with Lovell.'
