Rosemont, Lauanne. Twenty Fifth September 1846.
My Dear Talfourd.
Having received your letter today, with the greatest pleasure, I write a hasty note by return of Post, to say that I eschew all Scientific doings at Genoa (albeit they take place in my old house) and remain a fixture here, until November. Therefore, "on Saturday the 3rd. of October, between 4 and 5 in the afternoon", we shall expect you here: and your wants being so moderate, in respect of beds, I am happy to say we shall be able to house you all. We are on the Ouchy Road, a very little way out of Lausanne.
I am horribly hard at work with my Christmas Book, which runs (rather inconveniently) in a Curricle just now, with "Dealings with the Firm of Dombey and Son" - for that's the name of the other; in the beginning whereof, I have pleased myself, and hope to please you. Your advent will be a most noble holiday for me; and please God we will take a glorious walk on the Sunday.
Mrs. Dickens and her sister join me in kindest regards. In case this letter should not reach you at Chamounix, I have dispatched a duplicate of it to the Poste Restante, Geneva.
Ever Believe me
Most affectionately Yours
