Harriet Butler to Isabella Macpherson or ? Craig - Maria Edgeworth's health - Horner's Memoirs - 'the vividness with which she lives in the books which she likes is perfectly delightful and the variety of styles which amuse or touch or gratify her, makes what appears the most monotonous life in the world, without seeing any variety of people - full of new ideas and sources of interest for every hour - she has more than anyone else the union of ineffaceable memory for the old past both of books and of people with the most eager appetite for the present news - but all this she always was ...'
