"Georgina Meyrick's first book, Nothing to Nobody (1873), published, like all her books, under the name Brenda, was a ‘street arab’ or ‘waif’ tale in the tradition of Jessica's First Prayer (1867) by Sarah Smith. In Nothing to Nobody a Sunday school teacher reforms an orphan called Daddy Long Legs, and its emphasis on practical philanthropy and its mildly evangelical Anglicanism are typical of the author's work." - Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.
