pg 412To JOHN LIMBIRD,1 9 JULY 1838*

MS Chas. J. Sawyer Ltd. Address: Mr. Limbird | 143 Strand.

Twickenham Park Twickenham | Monday July 9th. 1838.

Mr. Charles Dickens in acknowledging the receipt of Mr. Limbird's note, begs to inform him that he is staying out of town for the summer, but that he will be in 48 Doughty Street for an hour on Monday next, the 16th., and will be happy to see him at One o'Clock on that day.

If Mr. Limbird's proposition be one which requires an earlier answer, and he will have the goodness to state it in a note directed to the address whence this letter is dated, Mr. Dickens will have much pleasure in giving it immediate attention.
