My Dear Kent
            I received both copies of the The Sun, with the tenderest pleasure and gratification.
            Everything that I can let you have in aid of the proposed record (which, of course, would be far more agreeable to me if done by you than by any other hand), shall be at your service. Dolby has all the figures relating to America, and you shall have for reference the books from which I read. They are afterwards going into Forster’s Collection.
           Can you come and dine tomorrow at halfpast 6. Only my people.
                                Ever Affectionately
                                           Charles Dickens
