Reading Experience:

Evidence:
Isaac D'Israeli to John Murray, 2 August 1810: 'I took the Q[uarterly]. R[eview]. with me. I like it well; and I do think it is far better than what you imagined it to be. The article on the "Fatal Revenge" is exquisite in humour, and very ingenious in criticism. I long to get to the Chinese article -- "Ramayuna."'
