Dear Sirs.
I wrote to Mr. Browne this morning.  He is coming to me tomorrow, to inspect the raven, and confer upon his subject.
I have written to Mr. Cattermole and told him that I want for the end of No. 49 the outside of the locksmith's House (at night) as described in the beginning of No. 48.  I have also told him that Mr. Chapman will let him have a block of an upright shape--the size is not material;  it needn't be very large--the house may come as it were thus
[here CD outlines the shape]
--in the shape of a house.  Do you understand?
I trust to the ingenious Master Builder to see this supplies with (all?) speech; and so wash my hands of No. 49 as far as the illustrations are concerned, and hand over the artist's whim.  You will be glad to hear that Mrs. Dickens and the child are not merely as well as can be expected, but a great deal better.
                                                                                                          Faithfully Yours
Messrs. Chapman and Hall                                                                      Charles DIckens
