The Seven Poor Travellers.


One of Dickens’ Christmas stories, this was first published as part of the 1854 Christmas edition of Charles Dickens‘s own periodical Household Words.

The first chapter relates Dickens’ visit to the ancient Richard Watts’s charity house at Rochester.

The second chapter is the touching story of “Richard Doubledick”, which Dickens supposedly told the travellers.

Dickens’ journey home on Christmas morning provides the short concluding chapter.
