James Justinian Morier : Zohrab the Hostage

'By the way, have you read Mr Morier's Hohrab, or the Hostage? And if you have, do you (as I hope) like it? And if you have not, can you tell whether others like it? I was charmed with it here in manuscript, when he kindly lent it to me. Besides, I delight in Mr Morier as a man, as well as an author'.
