Reading Experience:

'I have read your Objections to Sir Charles's Divided Love to Mrs Donellan. Just her sentiments, she said. And Harriet's frequent declarations of her love, she also censured; and honours you for both Opinions. Miss Mulso exulted, by clapping her wings, as I may say, on your Ladyship's Censure of the divided Love. She admires every word you say by way of Censure or Objection'.
