Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'And you know she [Ford's daughter, Julie] acted about her story just like a grown-up I know: No, it was not good enough for me to see. She had not had enough experience. Perhaps one day when she had had experience. And she supposed no-one would print her silly story. And she went and read it to Fannie, and then to Mlle Renee and at last she let me see it and explained that it would look much better when she had made a clean copy.'
