Friends of the Dickens Forum,

     Julian Crowe <[log in to unmask]> questions whether William Dorrit  
was the
recipient of a will:                                                 (pjm)

PS Another thought comes to mind from re-reading Michael Allen's original
> question.  He mentions the will that brought riches to William Dorrit, but
> unless I've missed something in Mr Pancks's account (always possible,
> because it is quite confusing) William Dorrit is heir-at-law, which
> suggests that the fortune he inherits was not bequeathed by will, but came
> to him because he was related to the deceased owner.
