Dickens in Camp. Is the Tribute Bret Harte Paid to the Memory of the Great English Novelist, and Many People Consider It the Californian's Masterpiece in Verse. Springing from a Deep Admiration for the Works of Dickens, which had Exercised a Profound Influence over Bret Harte's Childhood, it was Written Spontaneously, a Few Hours after the News of the Death of Dickens had Reached San Francisco. At the Time When the Whole English-speaking World Was Offering Homage to the Dead Master, This Short Poem, So Impassioned & Sincere, Came from Far-off California, and by Universal Consent has been Proclaimed the Finest Expression of Feeling Brought Forth by an Event that Spread Sadness over the Earth
