Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I am obliged to you for the "Hortulus Anime". I have not had time to examine it carefully, but so far as I have seen it is an admirable piece of work & I congratulate you on it. I send by parcel post two other jobs: One is "Roget?s Thesaurus". This is a book that I use every day, fairly roughly. Please bind it how you like, bearing this rough & constant usage in mind.'
