See Lohrli, p. 161: In this and in the other prose stories of "The Beguilement," passages identifying the narrator and linking him with the framework are not set off typographically from the stories themselves. Dickens and Collins collaborated on the number. In reprinting "The Armourer's Story," Fitzgerald deleted from the opening paragraph only the explanatory comment, "(it was the Armourer who spun this yarn.)."'


The tales which compose 'The Beguilement in the Boats,' the section of The Wreck of the 'Golden Mary' in which passengers and members of the crew, shipwrecked and adrift in open boats, tell stories to while away the time (see 'The Wreck'), are as follows: 'The Armourer's Story' by Percy Fitzgerald, 'Poor Dick's Story' by Harriet Parr ('Holme Lee'), 'The Supercargo's Story' by Percy Fitzgerald, 'The Old Sailor's Story,' by Adelaide Anne Procter, and 'The Scotch Boy's Story' by the Rev. James White. It was for this section that Dickens solicited contributions to The Wreck of the 'Golden Mary'. In accordance with his usual practice, Dickens probably wrote most of the link passages which integrate this section. These passages, hitherto uncollected, are reprinted in the following pages. See notes to The Seven Poor Travellers and The Wreck of the 'Golden Mary' [1856 Christmas].

The interpolated story told in 'The Armourer's Story' is by Percy Fitzgerald. The Introduction to 'The Armourer's Story' [the opening paragraph, p. 585], however, are part of the framework of The Wreck of the 'Golden Mary' - part, that is, of the linking and bridging sections that Dickens usually wrote himself.

Title as in the Household Words Office Book (see Lohrli, p. 161); not in original text (introduced into transcript as interpolation).


The interpolated story told in 'The Supercargo's Story' is by Percy Fitzgerald. The Introduction to 'The Supercargo's Story' [the first paragraph, p. 593,] however, is part of the framework of The Wreck of the 'Golden Mary' - part, that is, of the linking and bridging sections that Dickens usually wrote himself. See notes to The Seven Poor Travellers, The Wreck of the 'Golden Mary,' [1856 Christmas] and 'The Beguilement in the Boats.'
