A moving letter written by Charlotte Bronte in 1848 goes on display at the Parsonage Museum, Haworth, for the first time tomorrow.

It reveals Charlotte's grief over the death of her brother Branwell, aged 31, in September 1848 and her fears about her sister Emily who died three months later, aged 30.

The black-bordered letter was in private hands in the US before it was acquired by the museum for £36,000. guzelian
