MS Dickens House.

I Devonshire Terrace | Thursday Night January 2nd. 1840

My Dear Sirs.

I determined not to thank you for the Turkey until it was quite gone, in order that you might have a becoming idea of its astonishing capabilities.

The last remnant of that blessed bird made its appearance at breakfast yesterday—I repeat it, yesterday—the other portions having furnished forth seven grills, one boil, and a cold lunch or two.

Accept my warm thanks (in which Mrs. Dickens begs to join) for your annual recollection of us, which we value very highly as one of the pleasant circumstances of a pleasant season—and couple with them my hearty wishes for many happy years to both of you and both of yours—and of good health and good work and good feeling to all of us.

  •                                              Always Faithfully Yours
  • Messrs. Bradbury and Evans.                         Charles Dickens
