Furnivals Inn | Thursday Evening.

My Dear Macrone—

As Mrs. Dickens has been very unwell all day, I have waited until now, to see whether it was probable that she would be able to go out tomorrow. I am sorry to say she will not: and she therefore desires her compliments to Mrs. Macrone, and begs me to say that she has no alternative but to defer a visit, to which she had looked forward with the utmost pleasure.

I suppose you will give me a call one of these Mornings, when you pass this way.

  • Believe me
  •      Most faithfully Yours
