Elizabeth Barrett to Mary Russell Mitford, 14 December 1836: 'How much ignorance I have to confess in sackcloth, with respect to the old dramatists! -- for indeed I have had little opportunity of walking with them in their purple & fine linen. Only [italics]extracts[end italics] from Bea[u]mont & Fletcher -- & Ford, -- have past before my eyes!'
