Devonshire Terrace.
  Thirtieth April 1849.
My Dear Sir
  Miss Coutts has communicated with me, in reference to the case – proposed for admission into the Home – in which you are kindly interested.
  I should like to have a few words of conversation with you on the subject, and to suggest to you why I rather fear it would do better in another kind of Institution. Would it be convenient to you if I called on you at 12 on Tuesday Wednesday? In case you should have any engagement for that time, I shall be at home at 5 tomorrow afternoon, but I shall be very happy to call upon you as I have proposed, if that will do.
  My Dear Sir
  Faithfully Yours
  Charles Dickens
The Reverend William Ellis.
