No one has questioned this tall tale by Poe, who had sent the English lion his two volumes of stories and a letter probably begging for a meeting. See Dickens’s reply of March 6, 1842 […] mentioning Dickens’s availability for only an hour on one busy day, presumably the very next one. Dickens was busy both in New York City and during his mere three days in 12 Fernando Galván Philadelphia, a stay scheduled for the projected book about his tour (American Notes, 1842). He desperately sought to avoid impositions on his time, yet had to waste a whole morning shaking over 600 hands, and he also visited the penitentiary and other public places, before moving on to Washington Clearly Poe had only a single interview, as a scrutiny of Dickens’s time frame shows (Pollin note 3).

But after the March 1842 interview in Philadelphia things changed. Poe did not read Dickens any more as he had been reading him until that time (or so it seems from the evidence currently available). No more reviews of Dickens’s books were written, with the exception of the one on American Notes, published anonymously; and suspicion and personal disappointment with the English writer gradually took root in Poe. In fact, he came to suspect Dickens of writing, or at least being behind, an unfavourable review of a book of poems to which he had contributed.
