Evidence

On one occasion, he came to me, flourishing a paper wildly in the air...I thought he had suddenly inherited a fortune, or that something of an extreme value had fallen in his way. "What in heaven"s name is it?" I asked. "This, my friend. For years a certain critic has practically damned my works - said there was nothing really in them - and now this person, whose ability I have always admired despite the fact that I have suffered, has declared: ""Stevenson has at last produced one of the best books of the season, and the claim of his friends seems fully justified, for the work is full of genius.""" His face was all aglow with feverish excitement. "Who is this wonderful critic, Stevenson, whose praise you so enjoy? And what bitter things has he said of you before?" "We will drop the severe things, Moors. You would never guess, if I gave you all morning, who it is who has at last admitted me to be in the front rank of my profession. It is Mrs Oliphant, my dear sir - Mrs Oliphant!"
