This (https://onlyanovel.wordpress.com/austen-reviews/sir-walter-scotts-review-of-emma/) was the review of Emma by Sir Water Scott in which he praises Jane Austen's writing. He praises her well drawn characters, and her way of making ordinary events interesting. That's all very well, and generous of him, but look at the spoilers. He gives away the plot of Emma, Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility.

From 1815? Wow! And I thought my own backlog of unread magazines was old!
