brazen copy of Bransby Williams. "An evening with Dickens" Steven calls it.
The distinction between him and the English artist whose idea and caracters he has stolen is simple. After seeing Mr. Williams you want to read Dickens; after Stevens you do not. Stevens should feel highly flattered over any reception accorded him by an audience ignorant of the more expensive and artistic original it has been unable to see.
