After the death of his wife, Mr. Brontë offered to marry Miss Burder, but was refused.
Notwithstanding, she possessed in full the Brontë seriousness, the Brontë strength of will.
What a picture one gets of this third and least considered of the Brontë sisters in the passage which I have quoted!
The Key to the Brontë Works shows the absurdness of such a claim.
It was to Manchester that Mr. Brontë was taken by his daughters to undergo this operation.
The Brontë sisters were "always children in the eyes of Tabitha."
Miss Brontë had not been many weeks in her new situation before she had a proof of the kind-hearted hospitality of her employers.
The family of Brontë appears, about this time, to have been in perfect peace.
Pray give my best respects to Mr. Brontë also, who may have some slight remembrance of me as a child.
"We are left to ourselves," said Mr. Brontë in the letter I have just quoted—and so it was.
