Elizabeth Barrett to Mary Russell Mitford, 21 September 1841:
'Mr Haydon's letters shut up in the best letter of all [i.e. one from Mitford], I received this
morning & will return to you in a day or two. I must let Papa just look at them. They
interested me much [...] How fine this life of genius is! -- & its religion too! [...] I like these
letters. They spring up like a fountain among the world's conventionalities'.
