Evidence

"I found Jessie crazy with tooth ache which lasted all day, and transported--it"s the only word for it--with admiration of the fifteen chapters, it appears, she has read before posting the MS to you. She cried ""wonderful""--which she has never done for anything of mine. But I am not jealous, since I share, I won"t say her opinion, but her feeling. Without exaggeration it"s no mean achievement for an imaginative work to produce such an effect on a person in bodily suffering and mental strain." Hence follow several more lines about Jessie"s reaction to the work.
