Chelsea 26 March / 1844—

My dear Sir,

Here under one cover are two parcels, a very small one and a large; which I shall be obliged if you can forward for me to Edinburgh. The small one has its address marked on it. The big one (which indeed is the whole matter) will require better packing; and then the address is “Mr Aitken / Assembly Street / Dumfries

By Coach from Edinr.”

It is also to be noted that the wooden part at the bottom contains a chalk sketch,1—and that part of the back thereof is only paper, capable of bursting if the books laid on it be too short!

With many apologies for so much trouble,

Yours always truly

T. Carlyle
