My Dear Stone
   I send you, herewith, the second part of the book, which I hope may interest you.  If you should prefer to have it read to you by the Inimitable, rather than to read it, I shall be at home this evening (loin of mutton at 1/2 past 5) and happy to do it.
   The proofs are full of printers' errors, but with the few corrections I have scrawled upon it, you will be able to make out what they mean.
   I send you, on the opposite side, a list of the subjects already in hand for this second part. If you should see no other in it that you like (I think it important that you should keep Milly, as you have begun with her) I will, in a day or two, describe you an unwritten subject from the third part of the book.

                                                           Ever Faithfully
                                                                Charles Dickens
