Reading Experience:

Evidence:
G. C. Lewis to George Grote, 5 November 1847: 'I received yesterday the volume on "Swiss Politics" which you were so good as to send me. I have since read it with great interest, and feel much indebted to you, both for having written the book, and having sent me a copy of it. The narrative is lucid and flowing, and the view taken of the whole series of events appears to me perfectly just and discriminating. It carries one back to the seventeenth century and seems to place one in the midst of the Thirty Years' War.'
