ALS to Charles Thomas [Thursday] 27 February 1879. Thomas worked at Robson, printers of The World which was serialising The Fallen Leaves. The letter itself is in another collection and reads

"Dear sir, When you send me the proofs and Revises on Saturday next, will you kindly add one more Revise of Weekly Portion 13 which begins on slip 50. Excuse the trouble I am giving you. I have had to send an extra Revise of Thirteenth Portion to America and have no Revise for myself. Faithfully yrs Wilkie Collins."
