Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'I owe you my best thanks for the gift of Mrs Cornfordís book of poems which I am delighted to have. I have been away in Wiltshire or would have thanked you sooner. I have just seen in todayís "Morning Post" a highly appreciative notice of the poems and I hear from Edward Thomas that he has sent a good review of the book to the "Chronicle", and if there should be more notices as good the poems will have a first rate send off. I was glad because from my first sight of Mrs Cornfordís poems I was convinced that she had an original and beautiful note, and I should not like to hear from the professional poetry-teachers that I was mistaken.'
