Reading Experience:

'Monday Novbr. [...] 14th. [...] dress and read Martin Luther with M. G[ambs]. His prayer just before presenting himself before the council at Worms is fine & full of energetic simplicity; what I chiefly remark is that in this piece [...] there are no passages of surpassing beauty as in Houwald, but the interest & vigour never relaxes for a moment either into indifference or feebleness.' [also records reading/listening to this text in journal entries for 10, 16, 19, 27 November 1825, with 'After dinner finished Martin Luther with M.G.' recorded on 30 November].
