Description

Excerpt from The Holly Tree, And, the Seven Poor Travellers Boots, and will assuredly make many fresh friends as here newly pictured by the cunning hand of an imaginative artist. Dickens himself often hit upon felicitous descriptions of his own work, and I fancy that he indicated the quality to which this little story owes its popularity when he wrote of it to Wilkie Collins, 'i think it's an odd idea, and gets some thing of the effect of 3. Fairy Story out of the most unlikely materials.' Unlikely as the episode might seem, fact has since borrowed from fiction, for our newspapers told us a few years ago of the elopement of a small couple of even fewer years than were those.
