Example text

4 Teacher The years 1835-40 are important but unhappy ones for all the Brontes. Charlotte spent most of her time teaching, not very cheerfully, at Miss Wooler's school and made her first unsuccessful attempt to be a governess. Branwell was faced with considerable setbacks in his aspirations to be an artist, and, like Charlotte, received discouragement in his literary ambitions. Emily made two brief forays from home, as a pupil at Miss Wooler's and as a teacher at Miss Patchett's school near Halifax; on both occasions she suffered from homesickness.

Subsequent editors and biographers have accepted this as a mistake, and changed the date to 2 October 1837. The postmark of the letter, delivered in the days before the penny post, but when a primitive local post had been established, is in fact 6 October 1838. Once this date has been established, several, but not all, of the other dates in this period fall into place. It looks as if Charlotte may have stayed at Miss Wooler's until the end of 1838, although spending some time at home in the summer because of ill health.
