Chelsea, 28 April, 1846—

Dear Sir,

I have now got done with Cromwell, all but the Proofs; and am ready any day to hear what you have to say about those other Books you were once talking of.

Meanwhile will you be so good as send me a Copy of the Hero-worship and of the F. Revolution (no matter how slightly bound): for I have to revise them at any rate for the American people. I find Hero-worship will be the one to begin with;—and there is no Copy here fit for my purpose.

The third vol of Cromwell will still be a trifle too long; I think, some 50 or 60 pages.

Yours always truly /

T. Carlyle
