Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'on Saturday the English proofs of Last Post descended on me and on Monday the American one's and I literally could do nothing else as Boni's wanted the proofs back on Monday night. That however was impossible, but I got them finished yesterday and then was too exhausted to do anything. In addition I have any amount of reading to do for the Collier's serial'.
