Letters Of Charles Dickens (eBook)
Edited By His Sister-In-Law And His Eldest Daughter
Sobre o livro
Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. We find some difficulty in being quite accurate in the arrangements of letters up to the end of 1839, for he had a careless habit in those days about dating his letters, very frequently putting only the day of the week on which he wrote, curiously in contrast with the habit of his later life, when his dates were always of the very fullest. A blank is made in Charles Dickens's correspondence with his family by the absence of any letter addressed to his daughter Kate (mrs. Perugini), to her great regret and to ours. In 1873, her furniture and other possessions were stored in the warehouse of the Pantechnicon at the time of the great fire there. All her. Property was destroyed, and, among other things, a box of papers which included her letters from her father.
