Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I have been reading Fox's Book of Martyrs - not straight forward; but choice parts, it is a very interesting Book The account of the deaths of Ridley and Latimer (especially the latter) is most affecting and impressive. There are some very sweet passages in them, yet I do not think the whole of such merit that they ought to have been published.'
