  Saturday Twentieth March 1858
Dear Mr. Eeles.
Will you be so good as to bind me for my readings:
  The chimes
  and 
    The Haunted Man
Each separately, and both like the Cricket--which I send with this, as a specimen. You will want two copies of each book, for which I send you an order on the other side.
  Faithfully Yours
