Elizabeth Barrett to Hugh Stuart Boyd, 3 November 1827:
'You have extremely obliged me by lending me your Select Translations, -- passages from
which, I have repeatedly read with increasing delight & admiration: particularly the Oration on
Eutropius, which is a picture in motion , -- & that [italics]Homeric[end italics] description of a
battle, contained in your extract from the 6th book of St Chrysostom "On the Priesthood".'
