Dear Forster,

Will you, like a good fellow as you always are, send me tomorrow by the Parcels Company the Twenty-third Volume of your Parliamentary History, if you can anywhere lay hands on it. I have, from the Eighth to the Twenty-second (inclusive), all the Volumes of your Py Hy, and the Index of the whole;—but want that 23d volume. Vol XXIII, p. 164 Appendix,—there is an unfortunate Speech there which I have forgotten,1—with a malison on it!—

In frightful haste / Your unfortunate / T. Carlyle—
