Reading Experience:

'Eugenia and myself were much interested in reading the trial of Governor Wale who I recollect seeing at Florence - he is condemned to be hanged for flogging a man to death when Governor of the Island of Goree about 20 years ago. He seems to deserve his fate but it is a horrible thing for his wife and family'.
