Reading Experience:

'I must say the various editions of the M.G. are a deep mystery. Yesterday in the "London" edition, not a word (except the picture) about "Elektra"! And today not a word about "Justice". Perhaps it was the Timbuctoo edition that they sent me. But it is rather trying to the faithful.'
