Charlotte Bronte (as Currer Bell) to her publishers, Messrs Smith, Elder and Co., 25 December 1847: "Permit me to thank you for your present, which reached me yesterday. I was not prepared for anything so truly tasteful, and when I had opened the parcel, removed the various envelopes, and at last got a glimpse of the chastely attractive binding, I was most agreeably surprised. What is better, on examination I find the contents fully to answer the expectation excited by the charming exterior; the [italics]Honey[end italics] is quite as choice as the [italics]Jar[end italics] is elegant. The illustrations too are very beautiful, some of them peculiarly so."
