Reading Experience:

Evidence:
?Besides the standard works of our great writers, I subscribed to a few serials, mostly educational. These included "British Controversionalist", Cassell?s "Popular Educator", "Historical Educator" and "Educational Course"? Cassell?s publications, cheap and solid, were a great book to me. The "Popular Educator" was my chief handbook. Always fond of linguistics studies, I tackled lessons in English, in French and in Latin.?
