Happy Birthday Charles Dickens!

Every single one of the men and women we read about, from the lowest Irish immigrant family to the occupants of the finest plantation house in the South, from New York City's elite to the sodbusters in Bloody Kansas. Washington, D. C., Richmond, Atlanta, Chicago, San Francisco and New Orleans--all had read or heard of Mr. Dickens. Happy Birthday, good sir!

  1. I showed part of Great Expectations and read a quote from David Copperfield, that dealt with money for my Economics class. That was to celebrate Dicken's Birthday today. #200.
