Reading Experience:

Many thanks for so kindly sending me your book. Of course I read the essay on myself when it appeared in the 'Mercury'. (One never misses these things.) Equally of course I did not agree with all of it, but at any rate I thought it very able and I agree heartily with all the praise; also I thought that some of the animadversions were rather good.
