Reading Experience:

'[...] but now since I've received the "Sat. Review" I've something to write about. The "german Tramp" is not only excellent[...] but it is something more. Of your short pieces I don't know but this this is the one I like best. The execution has a vigour-the right touch-- and an ease that delight me.' Hence follows around ten lines of appreciative criticism including a reference to two other stories published in the Saturday Review in 1899.
