Two page autograph letter signed by Dickens’s sister-in-law, Georgina Hogarth, who resided in the Dickens household from 1842 until Dickens’s death in 1870.  The letter is addressed to B. W. Matz, the Dickens scholar, and asks him to send two volumes of the Biographical Edition of C. D. – “Little Dombey” and “The Uncommercial Traveller.”  Hogarth says that at Easter she gives “A book each to two Young Brothers and wishes to have the volumes at hand when the time comes.”  The letter is signed “With all best wishes I am yours very sincerely, Georgie Hogarth.”  The manuscript for A Child’s History of England contains only chapter II and VI in Dickens’s hand.  The balance of the manuscript was dictated to Georgina.  Dickens’s wife Catherine was jealous of Georgina, blaming her in part for her own marital difficulties.  When Dickens and Catherine separated, son Charlie Jr. loyally stayed with his mother, while the couple’s two daughters, Katie and Mamie, and the remaining sons went to live with Dickens.  Georgina also went to live with Dickens.  In her will, Catherine made only one bequest to Georgina: a ring cast in the form of a snake!  There has been much conjecture about the relationship between Georgina and Charles.  There is no doubt that Georgina was a competent manager of the Dickens household, beloved by the children, and a loyal friend and confidant to Charles.  She was present when Dickens suffered his last paralytic stroke, ministering to him until the arrival of the doctors.  She was there at his death, as was Ellen Ternan.  In his will, Dickens left 1,000 pounds to Ellen, a large sum in 1870, but certainly not a munificent amount to one who had reputedly been his mistress for twelve years or more.  He bequeathed to Catherine during her lifetime the annual income from 8,000 pounds to be invested by sons Charles Jr. and Henry Fielding Dickens.  Again, not an overly generous amount to his wife of 33 years who had born him ten children.  He left all of his personal effects and 8,000 pounds outright to Georgina Hogarth.  Mounted adjacent to this letter is a reproduction of a photograph of Georgina Hogarth.
