5. Cheyne Row, Chelsea 10 March, 1847—

My dear Sir,

A Brother of mine, Dr Carlyle, with a Friend of his are desirous of hearing Mr Scott lecture at your Institution on Saturday Evg next.1 Might I request you to be so kind as to send him an Order to the effect required (“Dr Carlyle, 15. Cadogan Terrace, Chelsea”), and to mark on the Paper what the precise hour is, and the precise place. There will need no more writing.

I have not yet forgotten your kind invitation to look at the Schools under you; so soon as the weather mends a little, it is settled here that we address ourselves to perform that expedition.—— I read the Life of Lancaster with much interest, and could willingly read many more such.2

Believe me always / Yours very truly

T. Carlyle
