"[her mother having forbidden her to learn to read due to her weak eyes] I was at this time about five Years of Age, and my Mother being one Day abroad, I had happily laid hold on ""Alexander"s Feast"", and found something in it so charming, that I read it aloud; - but how like a condemned Criminal did I look, when my Father, softly opening his Study-door, took in the very Fact; I dropt my Book, and burst into Tears, begging Pardon, and promising never to do so again: But my Sorrow was soon dispell"d, when he bade me not be frighten"d, but read to him, which to his great Surprize, I did very distinctly, and without hurting the beauty of the Numbers. Instead of the whipping, of which I stood in Dread, he took me up in his Arms, and kiss"d me, giving me a whole Shilling, as a Reward, and told me, ""He would give me another, as soon as I got a Poem by Heart""; which he put into my Hand, and prov"d to be Mr [italics] Pope[end italics]"s sacred Eclogue, which Task I perform"d before my Mother return"d Home. They were both astonish"d at my Memory, and from that Day forward, I was [permitted to read as much as I pleas"d"
