Reading Experience:

[The Dean of Westminster writes] 'In a letter from Arthur Stanley, written from Hurstmonceux Rectory in the September of 1834, he says to his friend W. C. Lake (afterwards Dean of Durham), still at Rugby, that Julius Hare, with whom he was staying, "often reads to us in the evening things quite new to me, for instance [...] A. Tennyson's Poems," and he goes on to name some which had greatly pleased him, and to advise his friend to get the volume and read it.'
