My Dear Sir.
    Let me thank you for the proof of the letter you have addressed to me, which I received, by your favor, this morning. I have read it with the greatest satisfaction. And though I cannot lay claim to the merit you would give me; for doing so slight a thing as denouncing Slavery on any terms, but especially in co-existence with that monstrous Lie, the declaration of American Independence; still I cannot but feel proud of your approval and Good opinion.
                                                                                                            Faithfully Yours
                                                                                                                       Charles Dickens
