TC TO KARL AUGUST VARNHAGEN VON ENSE

London, 10th March, 1838—

My dear Sir,

Some two months ago I wrote to you, in grateful tho' late acknowledgement of your two volumes of Denkwürdigkeiten; which work I had then read, as others here have since done, with great satisfaction.1

The Bearer of this Note is Mr Woodhouse,2 a worthy English Gentleman; proceeding towards Vienna; desirous of knowing what is best in Germany and among the Germans. Permit me to recommend him to you. He is a stranger to Teutschland as yet, but deserves to know it better.

Perhaps if Dr Mundt3 is still in Berlin, he could, for my sake, be of some furtherance in this matter. At all events, please to accept, thro' Mr Woodhouse, my salutations and hearty assurances of continued regard.

Believe me always, / Yours with true esteem, / Thomas Carlyle—
