So we would rest our spirits
Concerning thee to his angels

To raise the Ghost of an Idea


Packages sent to faraway places / New Jersey / Dec. 2007

“I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it.

Their faithful Friend and Servant, C.D.

December, 1843. ”

~ preface to A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
