                                 Broadstairs. Wednesday Tenth August 1842.
My Dear Fred.
  In consequence of a letter I have had from Alfred, I expect him down here by Monday’s boat. I wish you would write to him by Thursday’s post (the day you receive this) at Birmingham, and tell him that Topping will bring Georgina’s parcel to him, on board the 9 o’Clock Ramsgate Boat. And I wish Topping would take “Belle” down too. I should like to have her here.
  The accordion, and Kate’s parcel, both arrived safely.
  Love from all.
  Have you got your leave yet?
  Affecy, Always
   Charles Dickens
Frederick  Dickens Esquire.
