Title as in the Household Words Office Book (see Lohrli, p. 161); not in original text (introduced into transcript as interpolation). The piece is introduced by a 4-line paragraph identifying the narrator and linking him with the framework.


The interpolated story (in the form of a narrative poem) told in 'The Old Sailor's Story' is by Adelaide Anne Procter. The Introduction to 'The Old Sailor's Story' [the opening paragraph, p, 597,] 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.'

'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.
