She found great happiness in Harriet's company and conversation, and was gratified to discover that the account of the Duke of Wellington her hostess had just written coincided with her own views on the idol of her youth. At Fox How, she met Matthew Arnold, who talked 'of her curates, of French novels, and her education in a school in Charlotte Bronte" 41 Brussels'; she found his manner foppish, but 'ere long a real modesty appeared under his assumed conceit'. In the solitude of Haworth, Charlotte could find no inspiration for writing, and the early months of 1851 are remarkable mostly for the postal attentions of James Taylor and his visit while on his way from Scotland, before leaving as his firm's representative for five years in India.
The loss of Elizabeth shortly afterwards meant that he turned to Charlotte for companionship, though he was a great favourite with his aunt. It is thought that Branwell was enrolled at the local grammar school in his eighth year but that he did not stay long. The teaching and curriculum were poor; Bran well was delicate and, if he attended, was probably ragged and bullied because of his 'carroty' hair and outbursts of temper. Emily's view, as Mr Bronte told Mrs Gaskell, was that when her brother would not listen to reason he deserved whipping.
In Haworth the seeds of his undoing had already been sown. The portrait-painter William Robinson was engaged to give him regular lessons, and it was confidently expected that Branwell would be admitted to the Academy Schools. The failure of his London visit made Charlotte realize that she must do something to help her family. Hence her teaching at Miss Wooler's in part exchange for the education, first of Emily (who soon found that she could not bear to be away from home), then of Anne; hence also Emily's valiant efforts at Law Hill.
