My Dear Fonblanque
    Will you dine wth me on Sunday Week, the Twentieth, at seven o'Clock? I name that distant day because D'Orsay dines with me then, and I know you and he have a great liking for each other.
    I was very sorry to see in the Postscript to the last Examiner, something that careless readers (a large class) will easily twist into a comparison between the English and American Newspapers. Bad as many of our journals are, Heaven knows, they cannot be set against each other for a moment; and Decency is not befriended by any effort to excuse the Transatlantic Blackguardism, which is so intense that I seriously believe words cannot describe it.
                                                                                       My Dear Fonblanque
                                                                                             Always Faithfully Yours
                                                                                                    Charles Dickens
