My dear Andersen,

I am delighted to receive your cordial note. We are crowded together here - wife, children and all - in a little house on the seaside. Come and look at us at five o'clock exactly today, and share our family dinner. We have nobody staying with us but Mr. Stone, a clever artist, and we shall be heartily pleased to see you. When you come back to England - which you must take an oath today to do soon - I shall hope to see you often in my own house in London, where I have a few little pictures and so forth, that I hope may interest you. But wheresoever you are, believe me that I always am

Your friend and admirer,

Charles Dickens.

Hans Christian Andersen.
