Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'On my asking him he [the schoolmaster] readily granted my request, nor did he ever revoke his grant: the books were chiefly old and odd volumes of the "Arminian" and the "Gentleman's Magazine"; these, though of but little intrinsic value, were to me a treasure, as they helped to give me a wider and more varied view of many things than I had previously been able to command.'
