Reading Experience:

Copied by Frances Burney into her journal letters, from Samuel Hoole, "Aurelia" (1783): 'I stood, a favouring muse, at Burey's side, To lash unfeeling Wealth and stubborn Pride, Soft Affectation, insolently vain, And wild Extravagance with all her sweeping train; ed her that mdern Hydra to engage, And point a Harrell to a mad'ning age: Then bade the moralist, admir'd and prais'd, Fly from the loud applause her talent raised.'
