My Dear Sir.

Three weeks ago last Friday, I was obliged to submit to a painful operation, and I have been confined to a sofa and a carriage ever since.

I am now, thank God, going out of town for a little change of air; having made a very quick and famous recovery. In Three Weeks I shall be at home again. Directly I return, I will not fail to write to you, and appoint an hour for seeing you.

If, in the meanwhile, you should desire to write me, I shall be very happy to hear from you, and to pay immediate attention to your letter. Address to me here, and it will be forwarded without loss of time.

  •                                              Faithfully Yours
  • Joseph Lunn Esquire.                           Charles Dickens
