Elizabeth Barrett Browning to Mary Russell Mitford, 2 October 1849: 'I saw the "Amba[r]valia" reviewed somewhere -- I fancy in the Spectator -- and was not much struck by the extracts. They may however have been selected without much discriminaton [...] I am very glad that you like the Gipsey Carrol in dear Mr Kenyon's volume, because it is, & was in M.S., a great favorite [sic] of mine.'
