Fellow Dickensians:

        By Tuesday of this week, the archives of DICKNS-L
will finally be up to date and available for retrieval.  As
some of you will have reason to know, we have had a shortage
of storage space and difficulties in transmitting files for several
months.  We have been especially frustrated in efforts to
get the essays from recent issues of _DICKENS WORLD_ loaded
into the archives.  Now the local listserver has finally found
adequate space for us and the several electronic gremlins have
been routed, at least for the nonce.

        Here is a list of what is now available.  It repeats
in part what you have seen before, but it is a fuller and, I
trust, a more useful resource for you.

        I shall be out of touch for about a week, but if you have
trouble accessing anything you want, please let me know and I
shall do what I can when I return.

Faithfully,

Patrick McCarthy
