GAD'S HILL PLACE,
HIGHAM BY ROCHESTER, KENT
Monday Third January 1859
My Dear Webster,
You may be sure I have not forgotten the old Shop now bran new, or lost an atom of my friendly interest in all belonging to the proprietor.
I should have come to you sooner, but that I have been closely occupied when in town, and have been much out of town to boot. After the middle of the month, I shall return to Tavistock House; and then a youth of engaging appearance will be seen applauding in the Private Boxes.
If I might express an opinion to you, I would say that I think you cannot too soon dash at the town with a thorough good Melo Drama, bringing all the resources of your stage into action. I feel sure it is what the town will want from you.
Faithfully Yours always
Charles Dickens
Benjamin Webster Esquire
