Write me by return.
                Broadstairs
                                First September 1841.
My Dear Mitton
                I am sorry to say that this week, we are full – and I am afraid you would not get a comfortable bed out of the house, by reason that we have two already – one for Fred, and one for Fanny’s servant. She and Burnett are still here; and Maclise came down yesterday.
                Now, I am coming up next Tuesday, and intend to return on Wednesday. Why can’t you come back with me on that day? We shall then have plenty of room, and surely you are not so very strong and special in your engagements, but that you can spare a few days next week, as well as this.
                Write and say ‘Yes’.
                Chapman and Hall have agreed to my terms; and for a year I am a free man. They are, I think, as fair as could be expected, and very promising indeed. More of this, when I come to town.
                Faithfully Yours always
                Charles Dickens
Thomas Mitton Esquire
