Dickens probably wrote the following portions of 'Spitalfields': from 'And what strange streets' (p. 27) to 'in the streets' (p. 29); from 'We knock at the door' (p. 30) to the conclusion.
Dickens may also have added substantially to the following sections: from the beginning to 'come to Spitalfields?' (p. 25); from 'Along a narrow passage' to 'money of Great Britain' (p. 25).
In addition, Dickens seems to have added many telling touches to passages primarily by Wills. For a discussion of the Dickens-Wills attributions, see note to 'Valentine's Day at the Post-Office.'
Spitalfields, as the article relates, was a portion of London resettled in the seventeenth century by French Huguenot weavers. These men had made the district a center of home silk weaving - a method of manufacture that had latterly become outmoded and uneconomic. Writing with subdued force and symbolic richness, Dickens, in his chief contribution to the piece (pp. 27-29), describes the weaver and his task, juxtaposes traditional ways with the thunderous rush of industrialization, and limns a stark picture of a doomed man at his doomed work.

Dickens probably wrote the following portion of 'Chips: Small Beginnings': from 'But our readers' (p. 41) to the conclusion.
The institution referred to below was the Westminster Ragged Dormitory, the program of which was described in the Household Words article, 'The Power of Small Beginnings' (20 July 1850), by W. H. Wills. The Westminster Ragged Dormitory took derelict boys from Ragged Schools, prisons, and streets, housed and trained them for a period, and then financed their emigration to the United States or Australia. The following 'Chip' gives an account of how some of the emigrants fared after they arrived in their new homes. The 'Chip' concludes with a characteristic comment by Dickens.
