Josepha Gulston : The School for Fathers

Charlotte Bronte to W. S. Williams, 3 April 1852:

'The box arrived safely and I very much thank you for the contents [books] which are most kindly selected. 'As you wished me to say what I thought of "The School for Fathers" -- I hastened to read it. The book seems to me clever, interesting, very amusing and likely to please generally. There is a merit in the choice of ground which is not yet too hackneyed; a comparative freshness of subject, character, and epoch give the tale a certain attractiveness [comments further and in detail on text].'

Century: 1850-1899     Reader/Listener/Group: Charlotte Brontë
