Evidence

Lady Harriet Cavendish to her former governess, Selina Trimmer, 13 November 1803: "I have been reading M"Cormick"s [sic] Life of Burke, a violent and abusive book, but chiefly composed of extracts from his works and speeches in parliament. These I think in eloquence and brilliancy of talent quite unrivalled and in the beginning of his life, his sentiments delightful. I hope you will approve in my choice of [italics]hero[end italics] [comments further][...] I have been reading more (at least more to the purpose) in this last week, than I have for a good while before, and I cannot express to you how much pleasure it gives me, and the difference to me in making my time pass quickly or tediously is inconceivable. Indeed here in bad weather and the very small party we are, it is necessary not to make our sejour here very disagreeable."
