Lake (afterwards Dean of Durham), still at Rugby, that Julius Hare, with whom he was staying, "often reads to us in the evening things quite new to me, for instance [...] A. Tennyson's Poems," and he goes on to name some which had greatly pleased him, and to advise his friend to get the volume and read it.'
