Evidence

"I presented my manuscript [of her novel, ""The Miser Married""] to Mr. Orme. In two days it was accepted, and I agreed to take half the profits. ""Now"", said Mr Orme, ""I will do you a favour which we seldom do in these cases, you shall see the opinion of our critic on your work."" I read it and asked if I might copy it. He instantly put it into the hand of one of the clerks, and gave me the copy, from which I now transcribe the following words. ""I am charmed with the Miser Married, which is in a style so wholly new, and to my taste, highly captivating. It will not, perhaps immediately attract popularity - it is so superior to all that is commonly found to please - no romance, no caricature, - no cant [cant underlined]. I must add, no humour - with that it would be a chef d"oeuvre."
