Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'Binda gave us a satirical character of the Duke of wellington said to be written by B.Constant "un heros froid et mediocre [...]" I am quite sick of Hobhouse's book his abuse of the Bourbons is not worth answering; if it were true its unaltered violence defeats its own malignity. The publication of the Bodleian and Ashmolean letters are very amusing in three volumes.'
