Description: DICKENS PAYS PEW RENT TO LONDON CHURCH DICKENS, CHARLES. Check accomplished and Signed, to "Pew Rent" in the amount of £10.10.0. 3x7 1/2 inches; two ink cancellation lines touching signature, tiny hole near left edge, blind revenue stamp near right edge, inlaid, vertical fold, verso is blank. (MRS) London, 14 February 1859

Notes: While often critical of dogmatism and evangelism in religious institutions, Dickens, who was raised by Anglican parents, supported some religious institutions and practices, having written a version of the gospels for the education of his children and, as shown in the present lot, having supported his parish church by paying pew rent--although he did not attend regularly.
