Evidence

Saturday, 10 February 1827: "I got a present of Lord Frederick Leveson Gower"s printed but unpublishd ""Tale of the Mill"" -- it is a fine tale of terror in itself and very happily brought out. He has certainly a true taste for poetry. I do not know why, but from my childhood I have seen something fearful or melancholy at least about a Mill [speculates on possible reasons for this] [...] So I enterd into the spirit of the terror with which Lord Frederick has invested his haunted spot."
