Reading Experience:

[Letter to Maria Barlow, dated Tuesday Morning, 16 August 1825] ...It is as I have just read from the pen of Madme Cottin "La musique, comme un seductor adroit, va toucher ce qu'ill y a deplus tendre dans le couer, reveile toutes les idees sensibles, et dispose au regret du bonheur et meme a' Celui de la peine." ... My leisure is passed in rummaging all over the French Novels the miserable public library here affords! I have just finishedAmelie Mansfield. My Aunt fancies I read for the sake of keeping up my French. I seem to be reading the language you are probably speaking.
