Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'I gather from a review that the conclusion of the book has not been printed in the Fortnightly?& this the most interesting part of the book. For this reason I should like the book. I had meant to buy it (sinning against my principle of never buying new books), but if I can get it for nothing I can put the price into the missionary box.'
