INTKOnUtmON III 

wbich sliU sell in coutitLew thoua&nds and in edition 
afler editioa^ 

Wh&tever may have been the sorrows ol ber life 
Charlotte Bronti- was so far fortunate in deatb in that 
her biography was written by the one woman among 
her contemporaries who bad the most genuine (Itneaa 
for the task. The result was to solidify the repatation 
of botb^ Mrs. (la^keLl ^vill live not only by a number 
of interesting novels bat uIbo by this memoir of ber 
friend. Charlotte Bronti^ would have lived in any case 
by her four poxverfu) stories; but her fame has been 
made thrice secure through the f^ver popular biography 
of her from the pen of Mrs, (iaskell^ of which we hare 
here a new edition. 

If It be granted that Mrs. Gaskeira ' Life of Charlotte 
Bronti;' is a classic, it may he urged with pertinence 
that the rough hand of editi>r or :inn<jtator should never 
be pUioed u|ion n i/laflsi<i without ajiology. Justiticfttion 
may, however, Iw found, it is hoped, in the addition of 
new material unknown to thy orjginui author. If nn 
apologv is due it must 1>e renderc<1 lir^t iif all to the 
memory of Mrs. <iuskell ;ind aflervvitrds to her surviv- 
ing friends and relalues. Tin; editor has ho far recog- 
nised this in thut he has :iiiuc<j at adding no single note 
or line that Krs. (iiuskell, were sho .still alive, would not, 
he belJuves, have conlially approved. !le would urge

HisB Bronte &nd Hn. Qaskell flnt met at the hboM 
of a oommoTi friend. Sir Jamee Kaj'Shuttleirorth, the 
Brioiy, WLndermera, on Aogiut 10, 1850. The friend- 
ship then formed w&s oemented by an exchange of 
Tuita. MiB8 Brontfi riaited Mrs. Qaakell in her Man- 
chester home first in 1S51, and afterwarda in 1863, and 
in ttie antnmn of 1SG3 Mrs- Qaskell stayed at the Pai*- 
sonage at HawortL Other aspects of their friendabip 
&re pleAaantly treated of in the ^ Life.' 

To trace the growth, bibliographicatly, of Mrs. Gas- 
kell^s famous book is an easy task. From the moment 
that abe received Mr. Brontu'e request the author of 
*Mary Barton ^ set to work with enthusiasm. She wrote 
letter after letter to &vory friend connected with the 
Bronti; story — to Mr. George Smith, the publieher, to 
Mr. Smith WiLliama, that publisher's literary adviser, to 
Ellen Nussey and Mary Taylor, Charlotte Bronte's old 
schoolfellows at Roe Head, to Margaret Wooler, her old 
school mistreas, and to Lfetitia Wheelwright, the friend 
of her Brussels life. All the correapondence has been 
preserved, and copies of it are in my hands. It relat«H 
with delightful enthusiasm the writer's experience in 
biograpby-making. Iler visits to Miss Nussey and Miss 
Wooler secured to her a number of Miss Bronte's letters. 
She thns acknowledges — on Sept. 6, 1356 — those tbab 
Miss Kussej lent to her : —

Hftwonh, nar Kelghlftj : March BO, 1807. 
Dear Sir,-^I thank you and Mre. Gaakell for the bio- 
graphical books yoa have nent me, I hare reail them with 
a high degree of metaneholj interest* and consider them 
amonget the ableat* most mterestingt and beat works of the 
kind, Mr«, Qaakell* though moving in what was to ber a 
new line — a somewhat critJoaL matter— has done herself 
great credit bj this biographical work* which I doubt not 
will plaoe her higher in literary fame eren than she stood 
before. Notwitbatancling that I hare formed my own 
opinion, from which the critics cannot shake me, I am ca- 
rious to know what they may say. I wtll thank yon, there- 
fore, to send me two or three newspapers containing oriti- 
ciimi on the biography, and I will remit the price of them 
to yoD in letter stamps. 

I remain, dear Sir, yours respectfully and trnly, 

P. Brontb.

n«oeasitated in the third edition of the * Uemoir' in no 
w«j iznpftired, but indeed mAlerialJj impioved, tbe aitlf^ 
tie Tslae of th« book. A oompariaon of tbe tbird edition 
with Its predeoenora, white It i-crroals on the one ude 
omuskms amoo&ting to & couple of pages, shows aJao 
the addition of new letters aod of much fresh informa- 
tion. The present publishers hare felt, in any oave, that 
having once withdrawn the oarlier isBaes of the book aa 
containing statcmente considered to be libellous, they 
oonld not be rospoosiUe for a republication of thoee state' 
tuentfl. This edition i«, therefore, an exact reproduction 
of the third edition, the only changce being the substi- 
tntion of the naine Elton for the initial ' E,,^ and of ' Miss 
Wooler' for ^ Miss W./ changes which, although trifling, 
will, it 18 believed, save the reader some irritation. In 
the few cases of neccesarj verification in which a name 
has been added in the text it is placed in brackeifl. The 
notes, whioh the Editor has endeavonred to make as few 
as possible, are so printed that tbey can be completely 
ignored when desired ^ 

Two hitherto unpublished letters of Hr. Bronte'a 
fittingly close the oorreapondenoe to which Mrs. Qu- 
keirs * Memoir' gave rise.

HAWOBTH PARSONAGE AND CHURCH 5 

rosd u ftt the ride, the*path goe» ronnd the corner into th« 
little plotof ground. Underneath the windowa is a hhttow 
flover^border, carefully tended in daja of yore, olthoagh 
only the most hardy plants could be mode to grow there. 
Within the stone wall, which keep« ont the anrronnding 
churchyard^ are buehes of elder and lilftc ; the rest of the 
ground is occnpiod bj a equare gmia - plot «nd a graTel 
walk. The houae is of grey stone, two Btorrea high, heav- 
ily roofed with flag«, in order to resist the winda that might 
strip off A lighter CDvering- It appears to have been built 
abont a hundred years ago* aod to consist of four rooms on 
each story ; the two windows on tbe right (as the Tivitor 
itandawith hia back to the church, ready to enter in at the 
front door) belonging to Mr. BrontB's study, the two on the 
left to the family sitting-room. Everything about the place 
telU of the most daititj order, the most e^qaiiite claanli- 
neas- The doomtepa are epotloea; the small old-faabioned 
window-panes glitter like looking-glass. Inside and outside 
of that bouse cleanliness goes up into its essence, purity.' 

The church lies, as 1 mentioned, above most of the 
bonsefl in the village ; and the graveyard rises above the 
church, and is terribly full of upright tombstones. Tbe 
chapel or church claims greater antiquity than any other in 
that part of the kingdom ; but there is no appearance of 
this in the external aspect of the present editlce, antoas it

TABLBTS OP THE BRONTE FAMELY U 

At the upper part of this tablet ample space Is allowed 
between the linea of the inacnptEon ; when the fint me- 
moriala were written down* the eurriTora, in tbeir fond af- 
fection, tboojfht little of the margin anU verge tb»j were 
leaving for those who wore fltill living- But w one dead 
member of tbe hottsehold foJlovra another Ea»t to the grave 
the lines are presaed together, and tbe letters become small 
and cramped. After the record of Anne's death there is 
room for no other. 

Bat one more of that generation — the last of that unrserj 
of SL1 little motherle^ children — was jot to follow, before 
the survivor, the childless and widowed father, fonnil his 
rest. On another tablet, below the first* the following reO' 
ord has been added to that moarnfol list : —

ou« than Id most others that the reader should he made 
acqnunted with the peculiar forms of population aud ao- 
cietj ftmidit vhich hor earliest years were pasaed, aod from 
whjoh hath her own end her Histor^A first impreuiona of 
hamui life must have boon recolvod. I shftll ehdeaToart 
therefaret before proceeding further with my work, to pre^ 
■ent lome idea of the character of the people of Haworth 
and the anrronniling diatricte. 

Even fto inhnhitant of tho iipi^hbonring oounty of Lan- 
caater Is struck by the peculiur force of character which 
the Yorkshiremeo display^' This makes them Lutercating 
as a race ; while, at the eanie time, as mdiviiluals the re- 
markable degree of eel f 'Sufficiency they poeeeae givoB tbem 
an air of iodeperidence rathor apt tn ropeL a stranger. I 
use this eipresflion * self-Hufticiency' in tho largeat ei-uK. 
Coniscioua of the atroug sagacity atjil the do^rged power of 
will which seem almost the birthright of tjio natives of the 
West Biding, each man relies npon liimeelf, and seeks no 
help at the hands of hia neighbour. From rarely requiring 
the aaaistance of othcrflf he comce to doubt the power of 
bestowing it; from the general succesa of his ufforts, ho 
grows to depend upon tbem, and to oror-estoem Mb own

miB of th« plaoea that lent forth iU fighting m«n to th« 
famous old battle of Flodden Field, and a Tillage Dot many 
milw from Bavortb. 

We were driving along the atreat, when one of tbon 
tie'ei--do-weel ladft who seem to have a kind of magnetio 
pover for miBfortnnas, having jnmped into the ctream that 
rQDi throagb the place, juet where all the broken glae* and 
bottle* are thrown, at^gered naked and nearly oaverad 
with blood into a oottage before ns. Beaidea reoeifing an- 
other bad cnt in the arm* he had completely laid open tfao 
artery, and was in a fair way of bleeding to death — wbioh, 
one of hu relatione oomforted him by saying, wonld be 
likely to '^avea deal o' trouble.' 

Vhen my husband had checked the effuaion of blood with 
a itrap that one of the bystanders anbnckled from hit leg, 
he asked if a surgeon had been sent for, 

' Yoi/ was the answer ; * bat we dinua think hoNl oome/ 

•Why not?* 

' He's owd, yo eecn, and Aathmatic, and it^s up-hill.' 

My buahand, taking a boy for his guide, drove as faat as 
he could to the aurgoon^a house* which waa about three- 
rjnarters of a mile off, and met the aunt of the wounded lad 
leaving it

' Well, he didna' aay ho wouldna' come^' 

'But tell him tho lad may bleed to death.' 

-I did,' 

'And what did he say ?' 

* Why, only " D n him ; what do I care ?" ' 

It ended, however, in his sDtidJng ouo of his sonSf who, 

though not brought up to ' the surgering trade,' was able to 

do what was necessary in the way of bandagea and plasters. 

The excuse made for the surgeon waa that 'he was near

Ghnrch. The mn and church appaared to bo in nataral 
connection! and, aa the labours of the Teraporane© Society

the low oblong stone parsonage^ high up> yet with a still 
higher background of sweeping moors — struck on the 
gentle, delicate wife, whose health even then was failing.
