Tuesday Fourteenth February 1860.

My Dear Albert Smith
  It is really painful to me to be unable to accept your invitation. Pray let it be understood between us, that this makes no difference in our friendship.
  But I can not be a guest at any house where Mrs. Hogarth's youngest daughter is received in the same capacity. There are some considerations in life that are superior to one's ease and pleasure. The lowest self respect on my own behalf, and on that of the girls, and on Georgina's. imposes this rule upon me. 
  With kind regard
  Ever Faithfully
  Charles Dickens
Albert Smith Esquire
