Evidence

"I also read, in 1813, the first six dialogues (in the common arrangement) of Plato, from the Euthyphron to the Theaetetus inclusive: which last dialogue, I venture to think, would have been better omitted, as it was totally impossible I should understand it."

Notes
Mill was translating the text under his father?s guidance, as part of his education in the Ancient Greek language. He reveals on p.6 that, since there were no available dictionaries he could use, he had to interrupt his father?s work (on his History of India) to ask him for the meaning of all words unfamiliar to him at the time.
