My Dear Talfourd.
    A gentleman with two thirds of all the English consonants in his name, and none of the Vowels - Secreatary to the Polish Association - called on me this morning, and entreated me to use my influence with you to induce you to become a Steward for the dinner to be given to Lord Dudley Stuart (see enclosure) on the 16th. Instant, and further to induce you to attend the dinner.
    I told him how you avoided such things. But as he pressed me very hard, and as I have (as I believe you have) a real regard for Lord Dudley Stuart, I relented, and said I would write and tell you how anxious the Committee are to have you, and that I have yielded myself up, very willingly, because of my friendship for the man who is to be honored.
    Don't curse me!
                                                                                                   Ever Yours Affectionately
                                                                                                                 Charles Dickens
Mr. Serjeant Talfourd
