Reading Experience:

'I like this book very much. ["Mr. Britling Sees It Through"] It is extremely original & sympathetic, & the scenes that ought to be the best are the best. In fact it is an impressive work. . . . P.S. You will doubtless find some of the corrections quite inadmissible. They are all simply suggestions. A.B.'
