Evidence

Catherine Talbot to Elizabeth Carter, 14 March 1752: "I have begun reading a book which promises some laughing amusement, ""The Female Quixote;"" the few chapters I read to my mother last night while we were undressing were whimsical enough and not at all low. I have not read Amelia, yet, but have seen it read and commented upon much to my edification by that good Bishop of Gloucester, who seldom misses spending two or three days of the week at this deanery [...] I have been particularly delighted with some of our afternoons, when we have sat unmolested by my dressing-room fire-side, he reading Amelia (and quarreling excessively at the two first volumes) my mother and I reading or working, or following our own devices as it might happen, and every one mixing little interruptions of chat as things come into their heads; with not a single ring at the door to disturb us."
