TC TO J. W. PARKER

Chelsea, Dec. 9 1847

DEAR SIR,

I have just received your cheque for the article on Cromwell (£17 12s. 6d.); and beg to return many thanks for this and all your other polite dealings with me in that matter.

I am very glad poor Sterling's book is to come out at last: the Life is dreadfully longwinded, but will have a lively interest for many, independently of all literary qualities.1

Believe me, / Yours very sincerely,

T. CARLYLE.
