The letters of Charles Dickens, of which more than 14,000 are known, range in date from about 1821, when Dickens was 9 years old, to 8 June 1870, the day before he died. They have been described as "invariably idiosyncratic, exuberant, vivid, and amusin. idely recognized as a significant body of work in themselves, part of the Dickens canon"
It may be said of these letters that their effect is to concentrate the light upon one side of Dickens's manifold and unceasing activities. They show him as an editor, ardent, but patient; sometimes impulsive, but always immovably steadfast in the execution of his purpose; firm in his grasp of principles, but resolutely careful in every detail which might serve to carry those principles into execution; himself an indefatigable worker, and not content with anything short of hard and honest work on the part of his fellow laborers; always devoted to good causes and perfectly fearless in his efforts to promote them.
In regard to his relations with Wills these letters form a very remarkable record, for they show how a mere official connection, involving at first a little friction gradually developed into a perfect confidence and a warm and enduring friendship.
