Reading Experience:

Evidence:
Patrick Delany to Samuel Richardson, 20 December 1753: 'I have begun a second time with Sir Charles Grandison, and assure you, in the main, I am better pleased with it than I was upon the first reading it; and yet now and then a little objection starts up before me, which I think it the part of a friend to communicate with an honest openness. I was offended with three words, [italics]leer[end italics], [italics]ogle[end italics], and [italics]stare[end italics], to which I am sure I shall never be reconciled, at least from the mouth of a fair lady, as they are there used [comments further on text].'
