To DR. JOHN ELLIOTSON


My Dear Doctor,

Thirteen months ago, when it seemed likely that this story had come to a
close, a kind friend brought you to my bedside, whence, in all
probability, I never should have risen but for your constant watchfulness
and skill. I like to recall your great goodness and kindness (as well as
many acts of others, showing quite a surprising friendship and sympathy)
at that time, when kindness and friendship were most needed and welcome.

And as you would take no other fee but thanks, let me record them here in
behalf of me and mine, and subscribe myself,

Yours most sincerely and gratefully,

W. M. THACKERAY.
