Reading Experience:

'[George Goldie] earnestly requested to see my MS. I gave it to him with reluctance, being predetermined to have nothing to do with him. He had not, however, well looked into the work till he thought he perceived something above common-place; and, when I next saw him, he was intent on being publisher of the work, offering me as much as Mr Constable, and all the subscribers to myself over and above'.
