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).
