Reading Experience:

"As Kingsbury and Farrell lost no opportunity of advancing their views, I was soon possessed of a tolerable knowledge of the tenets of each. This was supplemented by the perusal of the tracts issued by the Anti-Corn-law League, and the 'Examiner' newspaper. Farrell lent me the former, the 'Star,' and the 'New Moral World,' and his opponent their antidotes."
