Notes and Sources 3
N.B: The notes/sources below can be accessed individually by clicking on the small, superscripted numbers found with the relevant text throughout this web-site. The 'return' link at the end of each individual note/source will take you back whence you came. Some of the superscripted numbers are followed by a small letter 'n'; this denotes a 'note' as opposed to a mere 'source'. (Internet Explorer users beware: you may not always be 'taken to' or 'returned to' precisely the designated location on the page: for accurate results every time - use Netscape.)

Giving sources relating to Elizabeth Gaskell's 'The Life of Charlotte Brontë' presents a problem: there are so many different editions of this book, it is pointless giving page numbers. In this case I have tried to indicate where the information is located by giving the approximate distance through the relevant chapter (i.e. a quarter way through CH.5). In some cases I have stated the information's proximity to a dated letter - as all letters in the book are presented in date order, and are easy to locate.

97) One indication of the 'cut' version, is that it begins 'You must go back with me to the autumn of 1827': the beginning section (a letter - to a J. Halford), containing about 530 words, is missing. Also, there are no chapter headings throughout the book. Newby's first, and second editions included the said letter to Halford, which commences: 'To J. Halford. Esq. Dear Halford, when we were together last . . .', as well as all Chapter headings; however, it is not clear whether the presence of these in an edition is a guarantee that that edition is based, in its entirety, on the original Newby publications (though it probably is).

Articles on the 'cut' version of the novel: 'The Incomplete Texts of "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall"' by G. D. Hargreaves, B.S.T. part 82 1972. Also, 'Further Omissions in "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall"', by G. D. Hargreaves B.S.T. part 87 1977. (return)
