MS Berg Collection. Date: presumably the day after publication of Oliver, as last. Address: Mr. Serjeant Talfourd M.P. | &c &c.

My Dear Talfourd.

As my childish anxiety that you should finish Oliver Twist without delay, has undergone no diminution in the course of my trip, I send you one of the earliest copies I have been able to lay my hands on—only upon the understanding that you let me have it back without loss of time, to bind uniform with your Pickwick.

aWith best remembrances to all at home, and anxious hopes that neither you nor they may be disappointed in the dose of the fortunes of Oliver and Co.

  • Believe me, as always,
  •        Faithfully Yours
  • >                Charles Dickensa
