The Conductor of Household Words

  • John Hollingshead
Part of the Interviews and Recollections book series (IR)


Charles Dickens was a ‘sentimentalist’ in finance and taxation. He had very little sympathy with political economy; but, believing that I knew what I was writing about and feeling sure that I was in earnest, he gave me a free hand. Our politics were much alike. When I collected some of these papers, o f a purely political and financial character, and published them under the title of Rubbing the Gilt Off, I wished to show my admiration for Mr. John Bright by a dedication [and, by permission, did so].
