Text: Charles Dickens to Edgar Allan Poe — March 19, 1846


1 Devonshire Terrace, London. Nineteenth March 1846.

Dear Sir,

Although I have not received your volume, I avail myself of a leisure moment to thank you for the gift of it.

In reference to your proposal as regards the Daily News, I beg to assure you that I am not in any way connected with the Editorship or current Management of that Paper. I have an interest in it, and write such papers for it as I attach my name to. This is the whole amount of my connection with the Journal.

Any such proposition as yours, therefore, must be addressed to the Editor. I do not know, for certain, how that gentleman might regard it; but I should say that he probably has as many corespondents in America and elsewhere, as the Paper can afford space to.

I am Dear Sir

Faithfully Yours
Charles Dickens  

Edgar A. Poe Esquire
