Reading Experience:

Thomas Campbell to John Murray, 2 June 1809: 'I received the review, for which I thank you, and beg leave through you to express my best acknowledgements to the unknown reviewer. I do not by this mean to say that I think every one of his censures just [...] But altogether I am pleased with his manner, and very proud of his approbation. He reviews like a gentleman, a Christian, and a scholar.'
