Reading Experience:

'I have seen a letter from a Gentleman in Sweden which proves that her [Madame de Stael's] Anglomania did not first arise on coming to this country. I will try if I can get you a copy of it. Mademoiselle [Albertine] is very much praised in it, but I do not think that we admire her as much as they did in Sweden.' [The letter is included]
