Reading Experience:

'I read Shakspeare's (sic) "Passionate Pilgrim" at breakfast and found a sonnet in which he expresses admiration of Spenser (Sonnet VIII)... I must send word of this to G. who has written in his Goethe that Shakspeare has left no line in praise of a contemporary. [inserted later: (G. writes that this sonnet is Barnwell's)]'
