Evidence

"Mr. Wilson ""said that my novel [Mr. Hogarth’s Will] had been the subject of a great deal of discussion in his house. I asked, “Why?” He replied, “The uncle and the nieces, of course.” I thought no more of it till the death of Mr Wilson revealed that he had left his estate to the charities of Melbourne. Then my brother told me that when he was in England in 1877 Mr Wilson had told him that it was seldom that a novel had any influence over a man’s conduct, but that reading his sister’s novel had set him thinking, and had made him alter his will. He did not think it to the advantage of his nieces to be made rich, and he would leave his money to Victoria and Melbourne, where he had made it. I was the innocent cause of disappointing the nieces, for I think I made it clear that the uncle did very wrongly. But when I see 5,000 [pounds] a year distributed among Melbourne charities, and larger gifts for the building of a new hospital, I cannot help thinking that these are the results of Mr Wilson reading ""Mr Hogarth’s Will""; and it may be that other similar trusts are the result of Mr Wilson’s action.’
