Reading Experience:

Some little time since, I had the good fortune to find that there was at least one [one in italics] of your delightful books which I had missed - I mean 'In Trust' - and I am only now towards the end of the second volume. I am greatly interested, and more than ever admiring the way in which your powerful yet truth-loving imagination proves able to deal with the mazes of Human Nature.
