Dickens probably wrote the following portions of 'A Clause for the New Reform Bill': the paragraph beginning 'When, for instance' (p. 385); the paragraph beginning 'Even the Railways' (p. 386); from 'And let the New Reform Bill' (p. 387) to the conclusion.
Dickens may also have rewritten or added to the following passage: from the beginning to 'right to expect' (p. 385).
In addition, Dickens seems to have had a hand in many other passages.
'A Clause for the New Reform Bill' - a plea to reduce the mummery surrounding royal progresses - was conceived and outlined by Dickens. In a passage omitted from the published version of a letter to Wills (24 September 1858, from Newcastle) - the letter is now in the Huntington Library - Dickens, then on a reading tour, spoke of enclosing some notes regarding an idea about the Queen. Earlier, writing from Leeds (15 September 1858) while traveling on the same tour, he remarked to his daughter Mamie: 'These streets look like a great circus with the season just finished. All sorts of garish triumphal arches were put up for the Queen, and they have got smoky, and have been looked out of countenance by the sun, and are blistered and patchy, and half up and half down, and are hideous to behold. Spiritless men (evidently drunk for some time in the royal honour) are slowly removing them, and on the whole it is more like the clearing away of The Frozen Deep [a play by Wilkie Collins] at Tavistock House [Dickens' residence, where the play had been performed] than anything within your knowledge.' These remarks are versions of Dickens' chief additions to 'A Clause' (see ascriptions in first paragraph above), and are central to the substance and the theme of the essay. It seems likely that Collins, following Dickens' notes, wrote up Dickens' idea about the Queen, and that Dickens later went over the piece and added to it.

Over the Way

Dickens probably wrote the following portions of 'Over the Way': from 'very clever' to 'ever lived' (p. 573); from 'It was the fifth' (p. 574) to 'Charley of long ago' (p. 575); from '(for truly the Eye' to 'ashamed of it)' (p. 576); from 'It was a very wet Sunday' to 'it was to see eyes' (p. 577).

Dickens seems also to have added touches to other portions of 'Over the Way,' especially from the beginning to 'Charley of long ago' (p. 575).

Dickens probably wrote the following portions of 'Let at Last': from 'The only words' to 'about George Forley' (p. 606); from 'We could do no less' (p. 607) to the conclusion.
Dickens seems also to have added touches to passages primarily by Collins. See note to A House to Let [1858 CrElement Selection.

Dickens probably wrote the following sections of 'Doctor Dulcamara, M. P.': from 'We believe' to 'masculine, Morville' (p. 52); from 'To go from Warminster' (p. 52) to the conclusion.
Dickens may also have written or rewritten portions of the following passage: from the beginning to 'unchangeable Doctor Dulcamara!' (p. 49). In addition, Dickens seems to have added touches to other sections of the essay.
In a letter to Wills (10 November 1858), Dickens wrote: 'Don't go to press with Wilkie's paper about Sidney Herbert, Guizot, The Heir of Red-clyffe, and Dr. Dulcamara, without my seeing it.' Dickens usually went over Collins' sociopolitical articles in order to soften particularly offensive or radical passages (see, for example, Dickens' letter to Collins dated 11 August 1858, or his letter to Wills dated 24 September 1858). The lack of any reference to Lord Shaftesbury in Dickens' note to Wills probably indicates that the section on Shaftesbury did not appear in Collins' draft and was added by Dickens - a supposition strengthened by stylistic evidence.

Based on Charlotte M. Yonge, The Heir of Redclyffe (1853).
