Bentinck Street. | Thursday Evening.

Dear Sir.

I have to acknowledge the receipt of your note inclosing a copy of Mr. Delmar's and also of one from Mrs. Moore3 to that gentleman.

I beg to say that Mrs. Moore's representation of the understanding between us is so completely in opposition to what really occurred (I do not depend entirely on my own recollection, though that is perfect on the subject,—for there was a third party present) that I shall beg to decline any further negociation for the purchase of the house in Holywell Street.4

  •                                        I am
  •                                             Dear Sir
  •                                                   Yours truly
  • Charles Molloy Esqr.                                  Charles Dickens
