Dear Sir
  I will trouble you with as brief a letter as possible, in reference to my son Frank.
  While he is very sensible of your consideration, and appears to like all his surroundings in your office, I observe that he does not in his heart take to City business as naturally as his eldest brother has done, and that his inclinations and character incline far more towards such employment as I can give him in the office of my own Journal. I therefore purpose to remove him from the City, at your convenience, and to try him under my own training.
  Perhaps you will have the kindness to let him know when he had best leave you. Allow me to assure you that there is nothing to be considered on that head, but your own business convenience.
  I beg to thank you for your reception of both my boys, and to offer you all the good wishes of the time of year.
  Dear Sir
  Faithfully Yours
  Charles Dickens
Edward Brown Esquire
