John Wilson Croker to John Murray (1816): "I send you seven stories [for "Stories for Children from the History of England"], which, with the eleven you had before, brings us down to Richard III [...] I think you told me that you gave the first stories to your little boy to read. Perhaps you or Mrs. Murray would be so kind as to make a mark over against any such words as he may not have understood, and to favour me with any criticism the child may have made, for on this occasion I should prefer a critic of 6 years old to one of 60."
