Reading Experience:

Elizabeth Barrett to Mary Russell Mitford, 11 July 1839: 'I do not know whether Miss Garrow does or does not write ballads [...] I have seen no writing of her's except what was published in Lady Blessington's annual last year, & some stanzas in MS. upon LEL's death, which appeared to me rather inferior to the rest. Her verses are, in my mind, to judge from these specimens, graceful & feeling, without much indication of either mounting or sinking into other characteristics'.
