                                                                                Wednesday Evening
My Dear Sir,
Accept a thousand thanks for the Epistle which found me cogitating the next number of Nicholas, and instantly took me away from it to write an answer, which I inclose.  I send it open for your edification, but when you have read it pray seal it with a very large seal, in order that it may bear an appearance of becoming form and gravity.  The communication to which it is a reply, has amused me highly.
When do you mean to send those "fugitive pieces" concerning the rebellion in the [Garrick]?  I am in the last stage of hope deferred.
                                                                                                    My Dear Sir
                                                                                                         Always faithfully yours
                                                                                                               [Charles Dickens]
My best remembrances to your son, and congratulations on his honors.
