GAD'S HILL PLACE
HIGHAM BY ROCHESTER, KENT
Tuesday Thirteenth June 1865
My Dear Buckstone
Many thanks for your kind words of remembrance.
This is not all in my own hand, because I am too shaken to write many notes.  Not by the beating and dragging of the carriage in which I was--it did not go over, but was caught on the turn among the ruins of the bridge--but by the work afterwards to get out the dying and dead, which was terrible.
Faithfully Yours ever
Charles Dickens
J. B. Buckstone
