Evidence

Lady Caroline Lamb to John Murray (1816): "Thank you for Holcroft"s ""Life,"" which is extremely curious and interesting [...] I send you a book; pray read it -- ""Lady Calantha Limb."" The authoress, actuated by a holy zeal, says in her preface that she is resolved to turn me into ridicule. She chooses an easy task -- too easy, I fear -- yet fails, and makes a most blundering business. Wit"s razor"s edge she has not, but an unkind tongue to make up for it."
