Evidence:
Harriet Martineau, in letter of 8 July 1862: 'If Mr. Lucas's book should come in your way ("Secularia: Surveys on the Main Stream of History") do look at the chapter last but one, -- "Absolutism in Extremis," -- for his revelations of the conditions and perplexity of French politics. To my taste this book is charming, though he and I differ about American politics. Nearly all the rest is a very great treat to me.'
