5. Cheyne Row, Chelsea 8 Novr, 1845—


I owe your Partner at Berlin (unless Mr Varnhagen von Ense have paid him, in which case I owe Mr Varnhagen) for Books got there, the sum of 9 Thaler 15 sgn. I called yesterday to pay you, as I am instructed to do, but found nobody there who could tell me what the amount in English money was.

Will you be kind enough to apprise me, as soon as possible, that I may settle it; for I am going out of Town, and want to have a receipt which I can enclose to Hn Varnhagen. I left you the model of one yesterday, and expected to have heard farther of it today.

Yours obedtly /

T. Carlyle
