    PREFACE. AT the close of a letter addressed by Dickens to his friend John Forster, but not to be found in the English editions of the Life, the writer adds to his praises of the biography of Goldsmith these memorable words I desire no better formy fame, when my personal dustiness shall be past the control of my love of order, than such a biographer and such a critic. Dickens was a man of few close friendships his breast, he said, would not hold many people but, of these friend- ships, that with Forster was one of the earliest, as it was one of the most enduring. To Dickens, at least, his future biogra- pher must have been the embodiment of two qualities rarely combined in equal measure discretion and candour. In lit- matters his advice was taken almost as often as it was erary given, and nearly every proof-sheet of nearly every work of Dickens passed through his faithful helpmates hands. Nor were there many important decisions formed by Dickens concerning himself in the course of his manhood to which Forster was a stranger, though, unhappily, he more than once coun- selled in vain. On Mr. Forsters Life of Charles Dickens, together with the three volumes of Letters collected by Dickenss eldest daughter and his sister-in-law his dearest and best friend it is superfluous to state that the biographical portion of the following essay is mainly based. It may be superfluous, but it cannot be considered impertinent, if I add that the shortcomings of the Life have, in my opinion, been more frequently proclaimed than defined and that its merits are those of its author as well as of its subject. My sincere thanks are due for various favours shown to me in connexion with the production of this littlevolume by Miss Hogarth, Mr. Charles Dickens, Professor Henry Morley, Mr. Alexander Ireland, Mr. John Evans, Mr. Robinson, and Mr. Britton. Mr. Evans has kindly enabled me to correct some inaccuracies in Mr. Forsters account of Dickenss early Chatham days on unimpeachable first-hand evidence. I also beg Captain and Mrs. Budden to accept my thanks for allowing me to see Gads Hill Place. I am under special obligations to Mr. R. F. Sketchley, Libra- rian of the Dyce and Forster Libraries at South Kensington, for his courtesy in affording me much useful aid and informa- tion. With the kind permission of Mrs. Forster, Mr. Sketchley enabled me to supplement the records of Dickenss life, in the period 1838-41, from a hitherto unpublished source a series of brief entries by him in four volumes of The Law and Commercial Daily Remembrancer for those years. These volumes formed no part of the Forster bequest, but were added to it, under certain conditions, by Mrs. Forster. The entries are mostly very brief and sometimes there are months without an entry. Many days succeed one another with no other note than Work. Mr. R. H. Shepherds Bibliography of Dickens has been of considerable service to me. May I take this opportunity of commending tomy readers, as a charming reminiscence of the connexion between Charles Dickens and Rochester, Mr. Robert Langtons sketches illustrating a paper recently printed under that title Last, not least, as the Germans say, I wish to thankmy friend Professor T. N. Toller for the friendly counsel which has not been wanting to me on this, any more than on former occa- sions. A.W.W. PBWAOE BEFORE PICKWICK CONTENTS. CHAPTER I. CHAPTER II.
