Charlotte Bronte to George Smith, 11 March 1852: <br/><br/> "Is the first number of ""Bleak House"" generally admired? I liked the Chancery part, but when it passes into the autobiographic form, and the young woman who announces that she is not ""bright"" begins her history, it seems to me too often weak and twaddling; an amiable nature is caricatured, not faithfully rendered, in Miss Esther Summerson."
