Chelsea, 14 jany, 1849—

Dear Sir,

I had not heard of the late Mr Stuart;1 nor do I at all know whether the Literary Fund, or any other such Associations here (of none of which am I a member), would be likely to accept his case as coming within their department. At any rate the assistance they can afford is very temporary and trifling. The likeliest method, it strikes me, would surely be a subscription in Glasgow itself, where this unfortunate family and their lost father are known, and have friends?—

If you come on Sunday evg next about 7 o'clock to tea, you will find us here, very glad to see you again—

Yours always truly /

T. Carlyle
