Reading Experience:

8 February 1875: 'We had an agreeable journey to Folkestone where we took ship [for china-collecting expedition in Europe] [...] I was driven below by the intense cold so I lay down and read, with the greatest interest, my friend Charles Kingsley's Hereward. The subject is laid in my own Lincolnshire, and I know all the scenery he describes o'er well.'
