Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'[Maria Edgeworth's brother] talked a great deal of you and of "Glenarvon". Have you read the preface of the second edition? I took it up at the Library, having read an extract from it in the newspapers, I brought it home, and really think if Lady Caroline wrote it she deserves high place amongst the fair authors of the present day. I cannot think it is hers.'
