Reading Experience:

I’ve read 200 pp of 'Clissold'. Formless & wordy, I agree (introductory note foolish); but so far I think the book is very good. It is full of brains, & very provocative & stimulating, & I enjoyed it. If you want to realise how positively good 'Clissold' is, read a bit of 'The Silver Spoon'. But I know you won’t. Coward!
