re the author's note to Ch. 11 - not '4p' for four pre-decimal pennies, but '4d'. Currency came in pounds (l.), shillings, (s), and pennies (d). I believe from the old Roman 'liber', 'sestercii', and 'denarius'. I suspect Rowling was brought up in pre-decimal days, and wasted as much school time as I did on sums regarding 12 pennies to the shilling, 20 shillings to the pound, 21 shillings to the guinea, 4 farthings to the penny, 13s.8d to the mark, etc. Very minor nitpick, but it threw me out of the 1830s with an audible crunch, when I was otherwise enjoying the story. And now I'm wondering what the price of second hand books was then... :)

I'm amused that even the narrator refers to Edward William as 'Weasel'.

The reason I like this story better than Hogwarts 1940 is that I find all of the main characters so very likeable. Even Augustus Bulstrode has his good points!

I think the story of the misunderstanding with Elizabeth and the House-elves and the bowl of milk is fairly adorable.

I really like this world; it's detailed and pretty fun. The characters are already distinct, and the dialogue is great. You've given the Potterverse an original flavor, and it's a lot of fun.

This is an excellent story. I read it all the way through, loved it.
It puts me in mind of a cross between Harry Potter and one of Jane Austen's books, but what it really reminds me of is 'Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell' by Susanna Clarke, with all the fascinating footnotes with details of the period in which the story is set.
By the end, I felt emotionally invested in most of the characters and I wanted to find out what was going to happen next. There are a lot of memorable and funny moments in this story. In fact, I think I'll read it again.

The fic I compare this to is HPMOR. Enough said. Can't write a longer review, must continue reading.

I am thoroughly enjoying this story. I love the richness of historical detail and the way you have imagined all that has changed at Hogwarts as well as all that has remained the same. Good work!

Excellent story - I love all the historical details and it's very well-written. I hope you write more in the same genre.
