Abstract:

The collection includes 17 letters, including two to Dickens and fifteen to Edward J. Fraser, and two announcements apparently in Dickens's hand relating to a fund-raising effort to aid John Pyke Hullah (1812-1884), whose music school had burned in August 1860. Hullah, a composer and music teacher, was a long-time friend of Dickens, with whom he collaborated on an operetta produced in 1856 and other projects. Correspondents, many of whom wrote to agree to perform in benefit concerts, include Charlotte Sainton, Sir Julius Benedict, J. Sims Reeves, Sir Charles Halle, Charles Santley, and Francesco Berger. Also included in the collection is a carte-de-visite of the cast of "No Thoroughfare," Louis Lequel's adaptation of the book of the same name by Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins.
