Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'You must have had a lively time at Edinburgh from this "Beacon". But Edinburgh is rather too small for such explosions, where the conspirators and conspired against must be guests at the same board, and sleep under the same roof. The articles upon Madame de Stael and upon Wilks's Protestants appear to me to be very good. The article upon Scotch juries is surely too long'.
