MS Berg Collection. Date: "The Seal Caverns" (presumably the article CD refers to as "The Seal Hunt") was declined in the Notices of the Nov Miscellany. The reference to the draft Agreements (cf. last letter) was no doubt a reminder to Bentley to bring them when calling on CD that afternoon. On mourning paper.

Doughty Street. | Friday Morning

My Dear Sir.

I am obliged to wait at home to-day in expectation of a message (not a hostile one) and so shall be here from 2 to 3. You have the drafts of agreements. I inclosed them to you, you know.

The Seal Hunt is returned. It lies at your office, and was included in the last Notices to correspondents. I recollect nothing about the Prize Master,3 but will have looked over the book4 by the time you arrive.

  • Faithfully Yours, Dear Sir
  •         Charles Dickens

Richard Bentley Esqre.
