Robert Browning to Andre Victor Amedee de Ripert-Monclar, 5-7 December 1834: 'Madame Dudevant has accomplished something it seems -- a certain "Jacques" [...] I read an analysis of her's of the mental constitution of a gambler, from Lelia [...] a much truer exposition may be found in "The young Duke" by young D'Israeli [goes on to comment further upon latter novel].'
