My Dear Sir

The basket of game (No. 2)2 arrived safely. I assure you I enjoyed it heartily; and that I am very much obliged to you.

I am happy to say that I am greatly better, and have the appetite of a mountaineer, with the spirits that usually belong to me.

With many thanks to you, I am Dear Sir

  •                                                 Faithfully Yours

Editor’s Note
2 On 21 Oct Catherine had written to Hunton: "Dear Sir. I am requested by Mr. Dickens, to thank you very much for the basket of game you had the kindness to send, and to say, in reply to your note that he will be exceedingly glad to 'hear from you again'. Mr. Dickens begs me to add that he is recovering with great rapidity, and that he would have written to you himself but that he is still obliged to be on the Sofa and finding it no very easy matter to use his pen in that position (though he is obliged to do so several hours a day) deputes his correspondence to me" (MS Chicago Historical Society).
