Chelsea, 24 Octr, 1846—

Dear Sir,

Unless Dell is mentioned in Calamy's Abridgement (Catalogue of Divines ejected in 1662), I rather think there will be no express Life of him anywhere discoverable.1 But he appears frequently in the old Pamphlets; in Baxter's Life are two notices of him, two in Wood's Fasti;2 and old Sermons of his, preached before the House of Commons, are still to be met with on the Book-stalls, and doubtless in much better condition in the Bodleian Library.3 I have got one here,—for Monthly Fast-day 26 Novr 1646,—on “Reformation of the Church”; which, if at any time you cared to take so much trouble, I could very willingly lend you.4

I remain always / Yours sincerely

T. Carlyle
