Evidence

"With regard to your article, though admiring of the ingenuity of it, I yearned to tear the argument to rags. There is scarcely a single statement in that article to which I do not take violent exception. . . . Webster was intensely pleased with it, dreamed of it I believe, & only his modesty stopped him from addressing you thereon a note of congratulation. Marriott read it with awe; possibly it opened his eye to the strange fact that other arts than painting have their absorbing mysteries of technique."
