Excerpt from Elfrida My Dear Lee, Some months ago I published Kynwith at your suggestion, and if amusement were all one expected to derive from criticism, I have certainly had lack of it; but I look in vain for the proximate unity of opinion from which I hoped to obtain valuable hints as to the merit of ray work, and the expediency of further efforts. Looking over the reviews, I find the Athenaeum awarding me considerable power of word painting, some sense of humour, and much careful study of good models in verse; while the Imperial says, both thought and language are as prosaic as possible.
