Evidence

Charlotte Bronte to her publisher, W. S. Williams, 19 March 1850: <br/><br/> "I enclose for your perusal a scrap of paper which came into my hands without the knowledge of the writer. He is a poor working man of this village &mdash; a thoughtful, reading, feeling being, whose mind is too keen for his frame, and wears it out. I have not spoken to him above thrice in my life, for he is a Dissenter, and has rarely come in my way. The document is a sort of record of his feelings, after the perusal of ""Jane Eyre""; it is artless and earnest, genuine and generous. You must return it to me, for I value it more than testimonies from higher sources. He said: ""Miss Bronte, if she knew he had written it, would scorn him""; but, indeed, Miss Bronte does not scorn him; she only grieves that a mind of which this is the emanation should be kept crushed by the leaden hand of poverty &mdash; by the trials of uncertain health and the claims of a large family."
