My Dear Lady Blessington
                Do you or Count D’Orsay happen to have, in any unransacked corner, any letter I wrote you from Italy? I don’t think it all likely; but as drowning men catch at straws, I grasp at scraps of paper, to help myself on, in my travelling Recollections.
                I have a vague remembrance of something I wrote to you about Bologna (I think) and Verona – and of something I wrote to Count D’Orsay about the models of Rome – both of which fragments I should like to recall more distinctly, if you could help me to a better remembrance of them.
                Always My Dear Lady Blessington
                Faithfully Yours
                Charles Dickens
