     Devonshire Terrace
                       Christmas Day 1845
A Merry Christmas and a happy New Year, and many of 'em.

My Dear Stanny
    Do you think you will be well enough to take care of our Stage and Scenery for us, on Saturday Week? And shall I (if I don't see you next Saturday, when we rehearse all the Evening) let you know what the Rehearsal Nights are, in next week? I am in great tribulation for the want of you. They are so horribly imperfect, that I have no leisure to see after the Carpentering part of it: and leaden weights are on my mind, in consequence.
    I met your turkey in Tottenham Court Road last night. He was looking very well,- and so was Drury.
                                                                                          Affectionately Yours always
                                                                                                                 CD.
