Ellen Nussey's Diary
- Covering Anne's Last Days -

Unfortunately, under some dates, Ellen's notes span several years; and it is difficult, in some instances, determining to which year a particular note refers. The section of her diary presented here covers the period surrounding Anne's last days: the comments are written exactly as they appear in the diary (notes in square brackets and coloured red are my additions). (This diary is preserved in the BPM.) (Also see Harrison and Stanford, 'Anne Brontë - Her Life and Work', p.155.)
