Elizabeth Rose of Kilravock : unknown

Letter to Miss Dunbar May 17 1803 'You must have felt some of the pains and penalties of authorship, to have any ideas of the cordial satisfaction I derived from reading Mrs Rose?s* elegant criticism. I insist upon it, that it betrays hardihood, insolence, and indeed some hypocrisy, to affect indifference about public opinion, when one has left the safe and peaceful shades of privacy' [footnote]*Mrs Rose of Kilravock, whose taste and talents are universally known and respected in her own country.

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Anne Grant [nee MacVicar]
