      Of Crewe's second H.W. contribution ["The Golden Vale" VI, 377-81. Jan. 1, 1853], an account of an Irish peasant feud and of strife between an estate manager and tenant farmers, Dickens wrotes to Wills, Dec. 24, 1852 (article-title omitted in Nonesuch Letters; reads the Golden Vale in MS Huntingdon Library): "If my mind could have been materialised, and drawn along the tops of all the spikes on the outside of the Queen's Bench prison, it could not have been more agonized than by the Golden Vale; which for imbecility, carelessness, slovenly composition, relatives without antecedents, universal chaos and one absorbing whirlpool of jolter-headedness, beats anything in print and paper I have ever 'gone at' in my life."
