Bracketed title thus in the Office Book: see Lohrli, p. 161.


The paragraph beginning 'Before I go on to relate what happened' (p. 585) - almost certainly by Dickens - comes immediately after Collins' section of 'The Wreck' but has no connection with Collins' narrative and serves instead as a part of the framework, introducing the next major section of the story, 'The Beguilement in the Boats.' Dickens usually wrote the framework himself. See notes to The Seven Poor Travellers, The Wreck of the 'Golden Mary,' [1856 Christmas] and 'The Beguilement in the Boats.'

The Deliverance

'The Deliverance,' the third major section of The Wreck of the 'Golden Mary,' was by Wilkie Collins (see note for The Wreck of the 'Golden Mary' [1856 Christmas]). The opening paragraph after the rescue [starting 'From this point, I recollect nothing very distinctly', p. 607,] however, marked by a typographical break, and very different in style and quality from the material in which it is embedded, seems to be by Dickens.
