Queen Victoria amused by Trollope

I am grateful to Martha Wishart who spotted that Queen Victoria, in a letter to the Princess Royal dated 12/11/1858, mentioned that she was reading a very amusing book, Barchester Towers.

Her daughter replied “I like Barchester Towers very much, it makes one laugh till one cries, it is so very true; but I think it mischievous and rather wicked, everyone is bad in it almost, and it is illustrated to make one dislike everyone.”
