Reading Experience:

From Emily Tennyson's Journal (1873): 'Sept. 5th. [...] Bauer-Sierre. Returned through Domo d'Ossola over the Simplon. The coming over was a great disappointment. Thick mist the whole of the way except the first half-hour when we started from the Simplon Inn [...] During the evening we consoled ourselves by reading Lelia by George Sand'.
