TC TO JANE WILSON

Chelsea, Saturday [18 May 1844?]—

My dear Miss Wilson,

I have got a miserable cold, which keeps me close prisoner in the house;—shedding rivers of tears! It is one of the meanest diseases that afflicts poor humanity. The first day I get out, I hope to see you. Present my kind remembrances to Miss Fenwick,1 whom I will suppose to have safely arrived. Believe me always,

yours with great esteem

T. Carlyle.
