Transcription:

Tavistock House
                Sixth March 1852
My Dear Sir
                I have the greatest interest in those gallant men, and should have been delighted to dine in their company. I feel truly obliged to you for your kind remembrance on such an occasion.
                But I am engaged to Lord Lansdowne on Wednesday, and can only drink to them in the spirit – which I have often done when they have been farther off.
                I hope you will find occasion to put on your cocked hat, that they may see how terrific and imposing “a fore and after” can be made on shore.
                Faithfully Yours always
                Charles Dickens
T. Crofton Croker Esquire
