Evidence

"I have been reading ""Vanity Fair"" again & found it even more enjoyable than when I read it for the first time. I really think I like the Book better even than any of those of Dickens. ""Becky Sharp"" is prodigious. I thought however it to be a great mistake to pull Mr Sedley down so quickly after his bankruptcy & make him so soon appear so dreadfully shabby, humble & contemptible, particularly as ""Jos"" did what was necessary to prevent his parents being in want as he is stated to have sent instructions to his agents to furnish what money was required. The description given of poor old ""Sedley"" is the most painful & most truthful description of a ruined man without hopes or friends but the fall to such a condition would be very gradual & Sedley had"ent the time given him to arrive at it any more than his glossy coats had had time to become white in the Seams & Greasy in the collars."
