My Dear Sir,

I beg you a thousand pardons—In the hurry of my Nicklebeian Engagements in this most fraudulent month of eight and twenty days, I forgot your note. Pray excuse me.

I enclose a more formal acknowledgment of the return of the Sovereign,—and am, My Dear Sir,

  •                                              Very faithfully Yours
  • The Reverend W. H. Landon                    Charles Dickens
