My Dear Sir
  I beg to thank you cordially for the trouble you have so kindly taken in my behalf. We have bought the wine on very good terms, I think, and I am happy to enclose you a crossed cheque for my purchase-money.
  I gladly avail myself of the services of the person whom you employ to move your part of the wine, and – to save you trouble – write his instructions on the other side.
  My Dear Sir
  Yours faithfully and obliged
  Charles Dickens
