Here is the diary manuscript, and like the 1834
diary it was written in the renowned minute Brontë script on a tiny
piece of paper - this one a mere 112 x 91 mm. It includes a sketch by Emily,
showing the two sisters with their papers strewn across the dining room
table: Anne is on the left, and has her elbows on the table with her head
resting thoughtfully in her hands. Emily has her back to the artist, and
just beside her right shoulder can be seen the small tin box (actually
labelled 'the tin box')
where the papers were kept - this was almost certainly the box in which
Charlotte's husband, Arthur Bell Nicholls, discovered the diaries in 1895.
N.B: On a 15"
screen, and in 800 x 600 screen resolution mode, the diary paper appears
here actual size.148n
