Evidence

"I have been reading, and am enchanted by The Lady of the Lake! It has all the spirit of either of its predecessors, (have you read it?) and ten times the interest. When I had finished it, I remained with such a relish for <William> Walter Scott upon my mind, that I immediately borrowed and sat down to a second perusal of Marmion. I like the brave villain much for being so wholly divested of sneakingness - I admire his squabble with old Angus - his tranquil determination to gain possession of the Lady Clare, and [underlined] her lands, coute qui coute [end underlining], - And as for Constance de Beverley, and her infernal Trial, I think enough can never be said of her reprobate magnanimity, of the picturesque description of her person, of the surrounding gloomy objects - of scarcely any of the striking circumstances introduced throughout the whole harrowing scene. But here am I telling you of an old book just the sort of humdrum stuff I often tell myself with pen and ink in my little private reviews - And I wont say another word upon the subject. But have you seen a little volume of Westall"s Poems, containing a Day in Spring, and other detached pieces, with four lovely engravings from his own designs? One of them representing a youthful Spenser, dreaming about Knights, and squires, & Dames of high degree, and Fairies, & other entertaining whimsies. And all these visionary personages are dancing around him in the prettiest groupes you can imagine - You will think me a deuce of a pedant to keep jabbering so much about books, when perhaps you would like to hear about people. but I see no people, and keep company continually with books-"
