''I wish Mr. Trollope would go on writing Framley Parsonage for ever. I don't see any reason why it should ever come to an end, and everyone I know is always dreading the last number.'' --Author Elizabeth Gaskell to George Smith, publisher of the Cornhill, March 1, 1860 --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.

Chastisement aside, here's my assessment of "The Small House at Allington":
As Trollope himself stated in chapter 59 (that is, one before last): "I feel that I have been in fault in giving such prominence to a hobbledehoy, and that I should have told my story better had I brought Mr Crosbie more conspicuously forward on my canvas". I totally agree. Moreover, what from the outset marred this volume for me, a Trollope zealot, were the incidents at, or concerned with, Burton Crescent and its denizens. So, if I ever manage to secure a ticket for a ride in a time machine, I shall go back to the year of our lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty two in order to entreat Trollope to expunge the lacklustre scenes of the Roper family, the Lupex couple and that dupe Cradell from this narrative. Of course, if deemed apposite, I may undertake any other comission of that ilk that you bring forth. I'm open to requests now!
