Charlotte Sophia Scott to Miss Millar (former governess), 5 July 1819: 'I would advise you to read a new book, which will be out soon called Peter's Letters to his Kinsfolk. It is one of the most clever, and at the same time rather severe books that has been written for ages. That is Papa's opinion.'
