Dickens probably wrote the following sections of 'The Old Lady in Threadneedle Street': the opening paragraph; from 'The music of golden thousands' to 'old rags' (p. 337); from 'They are like the caves' to 'shrewd suspicion!' (p. 340); from 'The descent' to 'surprise and consternation' (p. 341) ; from 'Here, standing in a great long building' to 'hay-stacks as are rotting here!' (p. 341).
Dickens may also have written or rewritten portions of the following passages: from 'This Old Lady' to 'that of touch' (p. 337); from 'The apartment' (p. 339) to 'into the streets' (p. 340).
The collaboration in this article is especially deft; Dickens seems to have had a hand in many additional passages. For a discussion of the Dickens-Wills attributions, see headnote to 'Valentine's Day at the Post-Office.'
