Reading Experience:

Evidence:
Letter II to Miss Harriet Reid of Glasgow, April 28 1773 '?he shewed so much ingenuity in discovering faults in every thing, that I burst out a laughing, and said we were certainly haunted by the ghost of Smelfungus, of whom Sterne give [sic] such an amusing account. By the bye, we had just that morning passed, ?with reverence due?, the monument of the original Smelfungus, which rises near his native spot, beside his favourite lake, which he delights to describe in Humphrey Clinker.'
