Evidence: "Also if he could let me have the 1st and 2nd volumes of either Grote or Thirlwall I should be much obliged."
Frequency Mentioned: Three times; 1:100 (34) "I have so much to do that I am afraid I must renounce Grote. [...] Grote is most interesting but I think that I could employ my time better in getting up the History in a smaller book than reading through two volumes of legends.", 1:338 (219) "The book is written throughout with a fine command of the subject & an artistic power as remarkable in a German as it is alien from Grote."
