Reading Experience:

Thursday, 1 March 1827: 'By the bye it is the anniversary of Bosworth field. In former days Richd. IIId. was always acted at London on this day [...] Walpole's Historic Doubts threw a mist about this Reign. It is very odd to see how his mind dwells upon [them] at first as the mere sport of imagination till at length they become such Dalilahs of his imagination that he deems it far worse than infidelity to doubt his Doubts.'
