Bronte manuscript to be auctioned

An unpublished Charlotte Bronte manuscript, that reveals a precursor to a scene in Jane Eyre, is to be auctioned at Sotheby's.

Stephen Whitehead, trustee of the Bronte Society, describes how they are determined to "bring home" the tiny manuscript, which is a part of a set of six, of which they own four already.
