Translation:

My dear friend,

Many thanks for your so very kind letter and for the theatre ticket. Unfortunately the letter did not arrive in time. And I have always longed to see Sarah in the tragedy of Phèdre! Perhaps (she it) it will be performed again? I will see you soon, my dear friend. I shake your hand

Charles Whibley

All my regards to Madame and Mademoiselle[6] who, I hope, are in good health.
