On this day in 1857
With regard to the statement that Mr Brontė, in his desire to bring up his children simply and heartily, refused to permit them to eat flesh meat he asserts that Nancy Garr alleges that the children had meat daily, and as much of the food as they chose. The early article from which they were restrained was butter, but its want was compensated for by what is known in Yorkshire as "spice-cake," a description of bread which is the staple food at Christmas for all meals but dinner.

"I did not know that I had an enemy in the world, much less one who would traduce me before my death. Everything in that book "the biography of his daughter" which relates to my conduct to my family is either false or distorted. I never did commit such acts as are ascribed to me. I stated this in a letter which I sent to Mrs Gaskell, requesting her at the same time to cancel the false statements about me in the next edition of her book. To this I received no other answer than that Mrs Gaskell was unwell, and unable to write."
Extract printed in the Daily News England), Friday, August 21, 1857
