Reading Experience:

Elizabeth Barrett to Mary Russell Mitford, 28 December 1842: 'I am bewitched, my beloved friend, to be sure! Do you know I could have been obstinate in my self-persuasion that I had returned to you Mrs Trollope's letter & here it is in my writing basket. And all this while I have been rewarding you for your kindness in letting me see it [...] & keeping you from sending your answer, by my carelessness.'
