  Tuesday Fourteenth April
  1846
My Dear Count D’Orsay
  Can you dine here, next Tuesday the Twenty First, at half past Six? Lord Robertson is going to dine with us – and Macready.
  If you can, we have been thinking it will be as well to Christen the youngster on that day. I protest, however, against you being summoned to the church part of the ceremony, because I can find you a Deputy, and save you the bore of coming out in the Morning.
  Ever Affectionately
  Charles Dickens
The Count D’Orsay.
