Evidence

Copious notes and dates of reading, incl. Dec 1918, Sept 1921. Trevelyan transcribes the dates when Macaulay also read Demosthenes (1836, 1837). Several references to the difficulty of the text, e.g.: ""All the same, Demosthenes is tough reading: far more difficult to me than Herodotus and Plato, or the ordinary narrative of Thucydides, let alone Xenophon."" On p.1: ""The Olynthiacs were the first Demosthenes I read, in prefect room at Harrow, about 1853.""
