Reading Experience:

'A book that I am sure would amuse Barrett, and perhaps you also, very much, is [underlined] Jouhaud's Paris dans le dixneuvieme Siecle [end underlining]. The account of it made me extremely desirous to see it. There are in it descriptions of the present Parisien world - the state of Religion, of society, of amusements, of schools, fashions &c, &c - And all appears fairly done, and in a manly unaffected manner. pate le 3eme [a little hand points to an ink blot] I should like also excessively to see [underlined] Catteau's Voyage en Allemagne et Suede. [end underlining] The little I read about it, has made me so fond of the Swedes! Not the Swedish nobles, but the tiers etat; the farmers, landholders and peasantry: they resemble the Swiss at their best; but appear still more carefully educated at their provincial schools, and are quite dear things.'
