Abstract:

Discussing Collins' health, presuming that it is related to his work on [No Name]. Mentioning that Dickens was ill when writing Bleak House, noting that he "shall not easily forget what [he] suffered under the fear of not being able to come up to time." Offering sincerely to assist Collins in any way that he can, even to "do [his] work" with only Collins' notes and a "few words of explanation," assuring Collins that "no one should find out the difference." Encouraging Collins to think of No Name as a Christmas number, an Idle apprentice, a Lighthouse, or a Frozen Deep [all of which Collins collaborated with Dickens to varying extents]. Assuring Collins that he will be well soon, and mentioning that Katie and Charley [Collins] are visiting.
