Inscriptions to E. H. Williams from His Wife, Christmas 1900, Ranked

An edition of the complete works of Charles Dickens came into my hands, and there was an inscription on each flyleaf to a Mr. E. H. Williams, from his wife. I thought they were pretty nice, so here they are from best to worst.
  1. 1.
    Bleak House
    The gold standard. E. H. Williams's wife swung for the fences and knocked the ball right out of the park. Nice job!
  2. 2.
    Nicholas Nickleby
    Another beautiful inscription. Looking at this almost makes me believe that true love is real.
  3. 3.
    Great Expectations
    Nailed it.
  4. 4.
    Dombey and Son
    Another favorite. E. H. Williams's wife must have been a fine woman indeed.
  5. 5.
    Our Mutual Friend
    Not amazing, but not bad either. No complaints here. It's a perfectly serviceable inscription.
  6. 6.
    Martin Chuzzlewit
    Middling, I guess. I can take it or leave it.
  7. 7.
    The Old Curiosity Shop
    Not gonna lie, I kinda feel like she phoned this one in. Maybe her hand was getting tired?
  8. 8.
    Christmas Stories
    INSCRIPTION PAGE MISSING. What might have happened? I wonder if there wasn't some secret domestic drama. Perhaps married life wasn't as idyllic as all that for the Williamses.
  9. 9.
    A Tale of Two Cities / Sketches by Boz
    I get kind of a sarcastic vibe off this one, like "Merry Christmas, Mister Man, here's your precious books, like you ever read anything besides the racing form." Maybe she was just having a low-blood-sugar moment.
  10. 10.
    The Pickwick Papers
    Obviously the bottom of the barrel. I think certain people need to pull their shit together and try a little harder next time.
