Title: ALs to Marion Ely
Twenty Seventh February 1855.
My Dear Miss Ely.
I was at the Olympic last night (Tit for Tat, excellent, and your protégé Dobson marvellously good), and did not find your note until I came home at midnight. If I had had it sooner, I have a strong suspicion that I should have been better pleased with my box-company, and worse with my stage entertainers – for then I should have been at the Princess’s with you.
Catherine told me you wished to have one of the reprinted l--? papers. I am truly sorry to tell you that I have not one left. I dispersed them at the time among those whom I had known in that association, and they were soon gone.
Ever believe me
Very faithfully Yours
