Evidence: “Moreover I do read for my amusement. I am carrying on 4 periodical novels- Tom Brown [at Oxford], Framley Parsonage, Great Expectations, & Thackeray's new tale. These I consume after dinner at the Union [Symonds's club on Trafalgar Square, London: cf. Memoirs, 255] for an hour, at wh time the Noel Room becomes insupportably hot.”
