Dearest Fanny
   A blunder on the part of the Shakespeare people between two lines, and two hours a.M. and P.M. occasion our going away, in an indescribable state of confusion, this morning.
  I have arranged with father to write me the fullest particulars about you, and shall lose no time in coming home again. I have given Topping instructions to bring out some more claret on Wednesday. God bless you a thousand times!
  You ever affectionate brother
  Charles Dickens
Fred sends his best love. I am afraid you had but a poor night; last night. We hardly closed our eyes, here. Kate is better, and charges me with all dear remembrances.
