French, Miss. Not identified. Two of her items are related by a masculine narrator: "Billeted in Boulogne" [XIII, 442–45. May 24,1856] by an Englishman staying with an English family in Boulogne; "Number Five, Hanbury Terrace," [XVI, 568–72. Dec. 12, 1857] by a solicitor's clerk of Irish background who had been a pupil at Christ's Hospital. Dickens found the Boulogne item "weak" (to Wills, April 27, 1856). "Two Difficult Cases: The First Case [lead]" [XIV, 385–91. Nov. 8, 1856] is an account of the trial of Spencer Cowper and three other barristers for the alleged murder, 1699, of the Quakeress Sarah Stout. (The second of "Two Difficult Cases" is by Morley and has no connection with the first case.) Payment for first and third contribution made by cheque.
