Holly-T ree Inn was the title of the 1H ousehold Words Christmas number for 1855, and it was written partly by Charles Dickens and partly by Wilkie Collins, but we have here only Dickens scontribution to the work a contribution complete in itself. Of the delightful little tale with its dual romance it is necessary to say but little. The second branch, telling of the elopement of two small children for Gretna Green was one of the best liked of the authors Readings both in England and in A merica, and it remains to-day probably one of the most popular of the minor writings of Charles Dickens.
