  Wednesday Sixth September
My Dear Leech.
  I hoist this signal in token of our return to Broadstairs, soon.
  My poor sister is to be buried on Friday, and we purpose coming back by the Little Western on Saturday Morning.
  Kate and Georgy send their loves to Mrs. Leech. To which I add something as near my ditto, as is lawful and right.
  It is a sad thing to see the little deformed boy whom my sister has left half unconscious of his bereavement. —It is sad and melancholy, altogether.
   Faithfully Yours always
  Charles Dickens
John Leech Esquire.
