Fanny Wilson to Maria Edgeworth - Deerbrook (H. Martineau) - more goodness than talent - want of proportion and perspective which in Maturin, Banim, Mrs Shelley in that style of writers one can easily pardon - want of life in characters - 'In Miss Austen's novels even in the most tedious parts one never thinks of the author or wonders why she talks so much about stupid people only feels glad when one gets out of their company' - Charles Fox has found a buyer for Francis Beaufort Edgeworth's Tintorettos - Lord Farnham has a good bargain - devastation of the January storm at Edgeworthstown
