Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'Tuesday, 13th April, Madge intending to call, decided to go to the Settlement to see Algy and his players. The rehearsal fell through however owing to the Settlement being crowded. Postponed to Friday. I walked down to the Ferry with Bal Lear, talking about the merits of the ?Observer? and Garvin?s leaders. The beautiful weather which has lasted, unbroken, for three weeks came to an end today. It looks as though summer had set in. Read ? ?English Humourists? (W. M. Thackeray)'
