Far too much time on my hands...

From Charlotte Brontë and her Circle by Clement K. Shorter (1896).

'I have read "Madeline." It is a fine pearl in simple setting. Julia Kavanagh has my esteem; I would rather know her than many far more brilliant personages. Somehow my heart leans more to her than to Eliza Lynn, for instance. Not that I have read either "Amymone" or "azeth," but I have seen extracts from them which I found it literally impossible to digest. They presented to my imagination Lytton Bulwer in petticaosts -- an overwhelming vision.' CURRER BELL (Charlotte Brontë)

Why thank you :) It was a lot of fun drawing this little illustration. I've been wondering if it would be a good idea if I made similar illustrations of things, as I go along. Brontëana might turn into a kind of old-fashioned illustrated magazine! :D
