My Dear Miss Kelly.
                I would have 500 announcements such as I have written on the other side, printed (if I were you) each on a sheet of Note Paper, and laid upon the seats all over the house, wherever our Bills are laid, on the Night of the 15th. Do you come down yourself, and see to their distribution; and I will take care that they are not removed .
                To the Private Boxes, I would send the same announcement, enclosed in an envelope with a short note from Yourself, to the effect that you ventured to take the liberty of begging attention to it. I would Seal Each of these, and direct it, personally, to the occupier of the Box, by name. Our box list shall be at your disposal on the previous Monday.
                Will this do for you?
                                Faithfully Yours
                                                Charles Dickens
