“….but that I can not(it is not will not) write at all if I ever think of my readers, & what impression I am making on them. ‘If they don’t like me, they must lump me’ to use a Lancashire proverb. It is from no despising my readers. I am sure I don’t do that, but if I ever let the thought or consciousness of them come between me & my subject I could not write at all.” -Elizabeth Gaskell to Charles Eliot Norton 5/10/1858
