Devonshire Terrace
Twenty First January 1850.
My Dear Mrs. Gibson
I suppose the enclosed is the best form of bearing solemn testimony to Mrs. Lega Fletcher’s merits?
Many thanks for your list of words, which is particularly well-timed, and will be extremely useful to me. I have laughed over the letter (I think it is the finest I ever read) until my eyes are dim.
I am not imprisoned yet, nor fined, nor put in stocks. So I am content to pocket my dignity, and begin to hope they haven’t missed me.
Kate and Georgy send their best loves.
Ever Faithfully Yours
Charles Dickens
Mrs. Milner Gibson.
