To H. W. KOLLE, [30 JULY 1832]

MS Comtesse de Suzannet. Date: Similar wording of invitation strongly suggests same day as last.

Fitzroy Street | Monday Morning.

My dear Kolle.

Are you going out of town next Saturday? Because if you are not we propose to get one or two young men together for the purpose of knocking up a song or two and I am specially directed to beg your attendance on the occasion.

I give you this early notice not because there is anything formal or party like in the arrangements for that day but in order that I may have a better chance of securing you.

You will perhaps oblige me with a line at your earliest convenience, giving me your arrangements for Saturday, and the probability of your local destination on that Day.

Trusting that every thing goes on as well as ever (which I have been more than once inclined to doubt in consequence of not hearing from or seeing you)

  • I remain
  •        My dear Kolle
  •             Yours Sincerely
  •                      Charles Dickens
