Title: ANs to Mr. Massett
Tavistock House. W. C.
Monday First March 1858.
Mr. Charles Dickens presents his Compliments to Mr. Massett, and begs to acknowledge the receipt of Mr. Massett’s obliging note. His absence from Town for a day or two, has delayed his reply.
He begs to add, that Mr. Massett is at perfect liberty to read, at any of the proposed entertainments, the passage from Bleak House descriptive of “Jo’s” death. He merely begs the favor (to save himself from an interminable correspondence with English readers and lecturers), that Mr. Massett will make no special mention of him in the Programmes.
