Chapter XXIVEdit

Dolly tells Felix that Melmotte is about to owe Dolly money for selling property, and that Felix can tell Melmotte that he can put some of that toward Felix’s shares since Dolly owes Felix money. Felix says, “‘You could write me that, -- in a business sort of way.’ ‘I couldn’t do that Carbruy. What’s the use? I never write any letters. I can’t do it. You tell him that; and if the sale comes off, I’ll make it straight’” (198). #Letters #Permanence
