Title: ALs to Thomas Noon Talfourd
Devonshire Terrace I Friday Night Thirtieth Decr.
My Dear Talfourd.
My attention was attracted to the book in the accompanying parcel, by an advertisement in the Papers the other day, which announced for eighteen pence Such and such a Volume of "Parley's Library. Containing every incident in The Old Curiosity Shop and Barnaby Rudge". The yellow pamphlets (Nos. of the same publication) contain a great amount of Extract from the American Book. The fellow who publishes these Piracies hasn't a penny in the World; but I shall be glad to know, at your convenience, whether the Law gives us any means of stopping him short.
If you will tell me in one line, when and where I can see you, I will come, and be much obliged to you.
