Evidence

Horace Walpole to Mary Berry, 8 November 1790: "In this country the stock of the National Assembly is fallen down to bankruptcy [...] the fatal blow has been at last given by Mr. Burke. His pamphlet [""Reflections on the Revolution in France""] came out this day se"ennight, and is far superior to what was expected even by his warmest admirers. I have redde it twice, and tho" of 350 pages, I wish I could repeat every page by heart. It is sublime, profound, and gay. The wit and satire are equally brilliant, and the whole is wise, tho" in some points he goes too far, yet in general there is far less want of judgement than could be expected from [italics]him[end italics]."
