Walter Scott : The Heart of Midlothian

Harriet, Countess Granville, to her sister Lady Georgiana Morpeth, 28 August 1819: 'I admire F. Lamb perhaps more than I like him. I think him uncommonly agreeable and clever, but he sees life in the most degrading light, and he simplifies the thing by thinking all men rogues and all women ----. He looks old and world-beaten, but still handsome. He seems to enjoy being here [Bolton Abbey], and sport, food, and sleep fill up his time. At any spare moment he reads the "Heart of Midlothian," of which he says: "Why, if you wish for my opinion, I think it the worst novel I ever read."'
