Portrait of Charles Culliford Boz Dickens at the age of fifteen, from a drawing by George Richmond.  Eckel quotes a letter from Dickens to Leigh Hunt dated July 19th, 1842, wherein he promises to send two of Hunt’s books to him so that he can personally inscribe them “for the sake of my lawful heir” (Charles Jr., pictured here).  This letter also comments on Dickens’s quarrel with Colburn over the remittance of the funds due to Mrs. Macrone, who was the beneficiary from the sale of The Pic Nic Papers.  Eckel quotes the letter in which Dickens writes of Colburn “I damned his eyes”.  Eckel claims this is the only known letter in which Dickens uses “cuss words.”
