Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'I received the Mag. with the inclosures last night; a great store of amusement The former I have not got time to read but I see there are some excellent articles in it as well as true comic ones. I like "Mediocrity". The Jacobite relics are doubtless very curious but they are totally English. They appear to me to be all the work of one man and I think them Tom D'Urfys I know they are; and I think that perhaps they are in his hand writing'.
