Evidence

"Much is being said and written now-a-days about the influence of books on the formation of character; let me therefore mention that my prime favourites while at Tait"s were ""Cobbett"s advice to young men"", and Charles Knight"s ""Pursuit of knowledge under difficulties""; which I read over and over again with great zest, and, I hope, much benefit. As a matter of course, I also read ""Tait"s Magazine"" regularly, making myself familiar with its contents even before publication; the elaborate reviews of many of the best books of the period affording me the opportunity of picking up a considerable amount of useful information. Curiously enough, the reading of the ""Waverley novels"" was to me a task of difficulty; and I am ashamed to say that I have only read few of them, ""Guy Mannering"", ""The Heart of Midlothian"", ""The Bride of Lammermoor"" and ""St Ronan"s Well"". ""Waverley"", although attempted more than once, failed to attract."
