"Novel reading...[evokes]...a set of images, which amuse only from their variety and rapid succession, like the pictures of a magic lantern; not like a piece of Vanderlyn, where the painter makes fine touches, and leaves to your vanity at least the merit of discovering them."  Theodosia Burr Alston to her father, Vice-President Aaron Burr (October 21, 1803)
