Reading Experience:

Fanny Kemble, 21 September 1832: 'The few critiques that I have seen upon our acting have been, upon the whole, laudatory. One was sent to me from a paper called the Mirror, which pleased me very much [...] it was written with great taste and feeling, and was evidently not the produce of a common press hack'.
