Reading Experience:

Evidence:
Robert Southey to Grosvenor Charles Bedford, c. 1 October 1795, 'Of Citoyenne Rolands appeal I have read the first only. at present the politics of France puzzle me — there is little ability at the head of affairs — Louvet may mean well — but the decree of 5th Fructidor is an oppressive one. Lanjuinais is almost the only man of whom I entertain a tolerable opinion. of all possible villains what think you of Barrere? have you read Helen Williams’ letters & Louvet account of his escape?'
