Reading Experience:

Evidence:

Elizabeth Barrett to Mary Russell Mitford, 23-25 December 1841: 'Mrs Jameson's early writings -- the Ennuyee for instance -- have an adroit leaning to sentiment, which is [italics]sentimentality[end italics], & provokes one the more for the excellent taste observable & admirable even there. In her later books, I do, I confess, see much to admire. The conversations, for instance, on the state of art & literature in Germany .. oh surely, we cannot all but admire their acuteness & eloquence & high intonation.'
