1 Devonshire Terrace, York Gate, Regents Park | Twenty-sixth April 1844

Mr. Charles Dickens presents his compliments to M. Döbler, and very much regrets that being already engaged for tomorrow, he cannot avail himself of the box which M. Döbler has so kindly sent him through Mr. Schloss.4 But if M. Dobler should have another opportunity of conferring a similar favor on Mr. Dickens, it will give Mr. D. great pleasure to accept it.

Mr. Dickens begs to add, that he had the pleasure of seeing M. Döbler at the pg 114Saint James's Theatre on the last occasion1 of M. Döbler's being in London; and that he was much astonished and delighted by his magical performances.
