Chelsea, London, 5 May / 1845—

My dear Sir,

Will you allow me to introduce to you Mr James Dodds, whom I have known for some years by Letters and Sight, as a young man of much talent, zeal, enthusiasm, good nature and honesty of heart;—who is at present occupied with some Cameronian or Covenanting matters,1 and naturally longs to be put in communication with you and your resources in regard to them. I think you will not grudge affording him what help is convenient for you; nor find it, now or afterwards, ill bestowed.

Thanks for your Notice of the old Pamphlet on Jenny Geddes;2 I got the fifth edition of Baker3 at Oxford, found the passage there; and have now done with that matter.

With many kind regards

Yours always truly /

T. Carlyle
