Reading Experience:

Evidence:

Elizabeth Barrett to Mary Russell Mitford, 14 April 1845: 'We shall find no where on the earth, I believe, the climate of Paradise; -- not even at Hyeres. In Mdme. Charles Reybeaud's [sic] "Deux a deux," which interested me more than any book of hers I have read since, .. (I withdraw my praise of her, -- she is a weak commonplace writer, I think, --) there was some good praise of Hyeres & the orange trees.'
