Evidence:

[Letter from Lord Byron to Annabella Milbanke, Feb 15 1814]. 'In my letter of ye 12th in answer to your last I omitted to say that I have not for several years looked into the tract of Locke's which you mention - but I have redde it formerly, though I fear to little purpose since it is forgotten. - & have always understod that and Butler's Analogy to be the best treatises of the kind... Of the Scriptures themselves I have ever been a reader and admirer as compositions, particularly the Arab-Job - and parts of Isaiah - and the Song of Deborah'.
