Reading Experience:

Evidence:
From the diary kept by George Grote for his fiancee, Harriet Lewin (autumn 1818): 'Thursday, October 15th, 1818. 'Rose at 6. Read Say's chapter on the Accumulation of Capital. Wrote some remarks on the meaning which he annexes to the word unproductive, in which I think he has fallen into some confusion. 'Rose at 6. Read Say's chapter on the Circulation of Commodities, which is admirable; equally deep and accurate.'
