Reading Experience:

'To her father she wrote about her term work, the poetry she was reading and with details about new publications. "Do", she urged him, "try to get hold of 'The London Mercury', a new periodical edited by J.C. Squire. The first number has just appeared and is quite excellent, - but I don't suppose it will keep it up. There are hitherto unpublished poems by Rupert Brooke and Thomas Hardy".'
