In the course of a. speech made by Mr. Mundella, M.P., at Sheffield, on Monday, that gentleman said "I was ciniug with a distinguished artist a few days ago, and he said to me, A short time ago I painted the portrait of Charles Dickens. It was arranged that I should sit in his room whilst he was at work, for he was a most painstaking, industrious, and methodical man, and nothing could divert him from the regularity of his habits. He sat for hours, again, and again, and again, and he wrote, as it seemed to me, almost with anguish. I looked in his face. and watched the anxiety and care, and the blotting out and re-writing of his work. I was astonished to find how much he owed to his indomitable perseverance."
