Sir.
                I am cordially obliged to you for the interesting intelligence you have been kind enough to send me. A day or two after I received your letter, I had from some other hand, a Port Nicholas Mens paper containing an advertisement of the Club Meetings. It was very curious to see the old familiar name in its unusual-looking columns.
                I hope when you write to your friend, you will convey to him (and through him, to his friends) an assurance of the great gratification I have derived from the circumstance of their meeting together for social purposes, under this name. To be associated with their pleasant recollections of home in their hours of relaxation, is to me a most proud and happy distinction. I really cannot tell you how very much it has interested and pleased me.
                I hope the Brighton club still flourishes nobly. And again thanking you for your communication and good wishes, which I fully reciprocate, I am
                Faithfully Yours
                Charles Dickens
T. P. Grinsted Esquire
