Evidence

From the diary kept by George Grote for his fiancee, Harriet Lewin (1819): "January, 1819. "Sunday -- Rose about 9. After reading Ricardo for some little time, I set to and wrote down some stuff upon Foreign Trade [...] At 1 I mounted my horse and rode to the Park [...] Returned to dinner at 6, very tired; read some of Lessing"s ""Laocoon"" [...] After tea set to at Ricardo again, but not finding my attention sufficiently alive, I dropt him, and looked over Melon"s ""Essai sur le Commerce,"" which I had had some curiosity to see. I found it the stupidest and most useless volume I ever opened."
