Reading Experience:

'[Sir [-]] observed that he was reperusing Miss Seward's Letters, and said, what an odd fancy it was to bequeath them to Constable, enjoining their publication after her death. "There are parts", said he, "I like very well; but there is too much gall in them, especially for any one to wish to have it spread when they were in the dust'.
