Notes
Taken from letter from JBW to Thomas Carlyle dated 24 March 1823, written at Haddington. Estimated date range based on date of her previous letter to him (28th February) in which she doesn't mention this work - it seems customary for them to discuss what they read and likely that she has only started it since she last wrote.
