Title: AN to Mr. Booth
 pages + envelope
Devonshire Terrace/Thirteenth March 1851
Mr. Charles Dickens presents his compliments to Mr. Booth, and begs to say that he is disposed to make an offer for the purchase of Balmoral House: but that before he does so, he wishes to go over it again, with an architect, to consider how a study of good size could best be built out from the existing villa.
Mr. Dickens is obliged to leave town for Malvern this morning, as it is necessary to take Mrs. Dickens to that place for her health. But he will be in town, either on Tuesday or Wednesday Morning and will then make another visit to Balmoral House, if it should be convenient to the inmates. He will trouble Mr. Booth with another note in the meantime, mentioning the day and hour on which he proposes to call there. He cannot make a definite appointment until her gets to Malvern.
