JWC TO THOMAS CARLYLE
(Chelsea, 26 July 1843
Two days and not a line from any of you! Your accustomed punctuality taken into account I find this very mysterous.
When the postman brought me today only a note from the never failing Geraldine, and a—Newspaper for you, I really turned quite sick with apprehension of I know not what. It is not right to have inflicted such a feeling on me, unless there be some very imperative reason. Meanwhile I cannot write to you— You do not deserve that I should— And I am too uncomfortable for writing, until I know the meaning of your silence.
Ever yours /
You would receive two Letters from me yesterday morning.1
