My Dear Webster
I have received a letter here this afternoon by the day post, form Mrs. Ternan (whose address is 2 Houghton Place Ampthill Square), telling me that you are making some prospective changes in your company, and asking me if I would object to recommend to you one of her daughters, Miss Maria Ternan. I cannot possible object to do so, on any other grounds than unwillingness to give you trouble, for I have a high opinion of the young lady and take a strong interest in herself and her family. It is likely enough that you know what she can do--how that she is accomplished and attractive, well used to the stage, sings prettily, and is favorably known to London Audiences. If you should be undecided between two applicants of equal pretensions (counting this young lady as one), I should be heartily glad if you would turn the scale in my direction--as I am sure you would in any case.
Always Faithfully Yours
Charles Dickens
Benjamin Webster Esquire
