Reading Experience:

Evidence:
Robert Southey to Charles Watkin Williams Wynn, 29 January 1796, 'We remained five days at Coruña — the only place where I met with the society I wished. Jardine is Consul there — you have probably waded thro his travels — a book that conveys much thought in a most uninteresting manner. such at least was the opinion I formed of it three years ago. he behaved to me with that degree of attention that soon produces intimacy — my time at Coruna was chiefly spent at his house & he gave much information respecting the country.'
