Reading Experience:

'I have read your prodigious & all-embracing "Love?s Pilgrimage". I should very strongly resent its being censored in England. It deals candidly, here and there, with sundry aspects of life which are not usually dealt with in English fiction, but which are dealt with quite as a matter of course in the fiction of all other countries except the United States.'
