Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'I have read the Review and no 23 of the Magazine and never did I read any works with so much interest Though quite different messes they are both exquisite in kind a feast of fat things. No previous number of the Review has been better; no one of the Magazine has been near so good: for some months past I felt as if I suspected a falling off, but this must give it a heeze again else originality of composition has lost its value'.
