Dear Sir,—This thing is now tolerably correct; all but the Scraps, which are a good deal worse than before, and indeed nearly unintelligible as they stand at present. Will you do me the favour to take charge of them, for I have no doubt you perfectly understand what is to be done, and can guide the Printer to what is wanted. Of course if there is any doubt, I can look at that part of the Proof again; but I believe there will be no doubt

Will you farther be so kind as charge the Printer to send me 4 copies of the Article (Perfect-Copies, I think Printers call them) so soon as he has put it to Press;—and by no means to forget, as I have known him do in the like case!

In haste / Yours very truly / T. Carlyle
