pg 285To MESSRS CHAPMAN & HALL, [?18 JULY 1837]

MS Bernard Halliday. Date: on mourning paper; therefore 1837 and referring to Pickwick; presumably written mid-month. Only in the Nos of Aug and Sep is there an illustration to the last chapter; and the reference here is probably to the Aug No., since in that the illustration goes with the very last page.1 Address: Messrs. Chapman & Hall | 186 Strand.

Doughty Street | Tuesday Morning.

Dear Sirs

I have been a good deal bothered by not having the plates. I can't possibly do the last part of the last chapter without them.

  • Faithfully Yours
