Reading Experience:

Elizabeth Barrrett to Lady Margaret Cocks, mid-May 1837: 'I have been much pleased lately in reading Lady Dacre's translations from Petrarch, which she has very kindly sent me. They are elegant & classical, -- & she has managed skilfully to double & redouble her rhymes in the manner of her original, & be graceful all the while.'
