in consequence of the missive, Of course you can…, penned by Robbin
Elizabeth may have been honestly wrong when she said "I am not a great reader". I don't imagine that the practice of statistics was highly developed in Regency England, Elizabeth would have no touchstone of how much the average British gentleman or woman read. If she was comparing herself to her father and to her sister Mary, she might not feel like a great reader, even if by the average standards of the British gentry she was.
