Marley was dead, to begin with- The Original Manuscript of "A Christmas Carol" Online

The Morgan Library and Museum in Manhattan normally exhibits a page from Charles Dickens' manuscript of "A Christmas Carol" every year around this time. This year, they allowed a NY Times photographer to photograph every page of the manuscript in order to make it available online at the NY Times' website. Check out the manuscript for yourself here. You can see the changes Dickens' made to his manuscript, which included cutting a reference to Shakespeare's Hamlet.
