Reading Experience:

Evidence:

‘You probably saw the Tea-table in B[lackwood's Magazine]. but it does not look so well in print as it sounded when Elizabeth Warde listen’d to it. Ladies praise makes one overrate one’s nothings sadly. However, it was not too bad to keep company with Delta and other periodic rhimers in the same luminous miscellany. One cannot select one’s company in a stage-coach.’
