Description
Dickens Charles
Charles Dickens Signed Envelope, August 1849
Signed autographed mailing envelope, 4" x 2.5", signed by Dickens along the bottom left corner in full signature: "Charles Dickens". Addressed in Dickens's hand to "James Stansfeld Esquire / 8 Thistle House / West Brompton / London". Red wax seal present verso. Envelope very neatly opened and in near fine condition.
An envelope in exceptional condition, accompanied by a photocopy of the original letter from Charles Dickens that it once contained. Dickens wrote to James Stansfeld, who began his career as a solicitor, and then became a member of Parliament, devoting most of his energy to promoting the cause of Italian unity. 
The copy of the letter reads in part: "My Dear Sir, I can have no objection to the alterations you propose to make in the address.  There are two more, equally slight, which I should like to make. For the phrase "almost as new in Rome as Rome is old," I would like to substitute "New in Rome"[.]"  The most notable change that was made in the address was the substitution of "the French Government" for "France" in the statement that the French arm had encircled Rome by means of "an act of such surreptitious baseness that it will remain that is will remain an ineffaceable stain upon the honour and the name of France, through all the coming ages of the world."
