Dickens probably wrote the following portions of 'Discovery of a Treasure Near Cheapside': from the beginning to 'uneasy about it!' (p. 195); from 'Thus, I came out' (p. 197) to the conclusion.
Dickens may also have added touches to the following passage: from 'I left the furnaces' to 'tale of sorrow' (p. 196).
'Discovery of a Treasure Near Cheapside' describes a visit to Brown and Wingrove's Wood Street Smelting Works, a gold refinery located at 30-31 Wood Street, Cheapside, London. The essay is another good example of a Dickensian 'process' article - an article which explains an ordinary manufacturing process and at the same time reveals its special wonder and enchantment. Dickens felt that this fusion of realism and fancy could help make daily life more imaginative and therefore more bearable. The anomalous tree which figures so prominently in Dickens' portion of the article was a plane tree growing at the corner of Wood Street in the church-yard of St. Peter's, Westcheap.

The Duke of Wellington died on 14 September and his state Funeral took place on 18 November. It was planned on a more magnificent and elaborate scale than any previous such occasion in the nation's history and, given Dickens's detestation of costly and elaborate funeral ceremonies, it is not surprising that he reacted negatively to all this. 'I think it a grevious thing,' he wrote to Miss Burdett Coutts on 23 September, 'a relapse into semi-barbarous practices...a pernicious corruption of the popular mind, just beginning to awaken from the long dream of inconsistencies, monstrosities, horrors and ruinous expenses, that has beset all classes of society in connexion with Death' (Pilgrim, Vol. VI, pp. 764–5). In the same letter he expressed his belief that it would be useless to publish any remonstrance on the subject until the wave of public emotion had subsided.
