Reading Experience:

"I was thinking of Eliot [Norton] the other day. When he was here in the summer he came one day to see Miss Valey. She had a pleasant little talk with us & was pleased, I think, with his friendly admiration of her books... The poems, I think, showed a real talent but - well, not quite of the first order."
