Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'I was astonished to find the following in the Quarterly Review: - "England has Carlyle". "There is no other English name to be placed beside that of Carlyle." Carlyle was a "Scot", not an Englishman, and protest in the strongest terms possible against any Scot being called by the infamous appellation of "Englishman". "Anglo-Saxon", "England", and "Englishman" are the most horrid and abominable appellations the tongue of man can utter.'

Additional Comments:

This letter is in a folder in the John Murray Archive, of correspondents with Prothero with surnames BAI to CRO. All letters are loose. The NLS was, at the time of writing, in the process of recataloguing the John Murray Archive. All MS call numbers should therefore be checked at source.
