"'The eldest, the Beauty is here,' said Traddles, in a low confidential voice, 'Caroline. And Sarah's here—the one I mentioned to you as having something the matter with her spine, you know. Immensely better! And the two youngest that Sophy educated are with us. And Louisa's here.' "

Like Tom and Sophy Traddles, Charles and Catherine Dickens often had relatives living with them. Dating from the end of their honeymoon, they almost never lived alone. A succession of relatives came to reside with them, including Catherine’s sisters and Charles’ younger brother, Frederick Dickens. It's a wonder Dickens ever got any work done!
