Dickens probably wrote the following portion of 'A Black Eagle in a Bad Way': from the beginning to 'Black Eagle of Austria' (p. 193).
Dickens may also have added briefly to the following passages: from 'The Court of Vienna' to 'noble pair' (p. 193); the concluding paragraph (p. 195).
Dickens' chief contribution to this piece seems to have been editorial - cutting, tightening, smoothing, and emending - a task which was probably a considerable one, for otherwise the Office Book would not have listed him as a joint author.
