The interpolated story told in 'The Fifth Poor Traveller' is by George Augustus Sala. The Introduction to 'The Fifth Poor Traveller', however, is part of the framework of The Seven Poor Travellers - part, that is, of the linking and bridging sections that Dickens usually wrote himself. See note to The Seven Poor Travellers.
