TC TO MARY RICH

Chelsea, 7 feby, 1850—

Dear Mrs Rich,

Here is your Philosopher's Letter again, which I am much obliged to you for taking the trouble of shewing me. Poor Gallaway's1 notions are worthy of all acceptance; if the majority, or if any considerable minority of us could adopt those, the world would be in a good way! Alas, alas, the very “Salt of the Earth”2 is now in such frightful deficiency everywhere that the whole affair seems hastening towards putrescence!—

Yours ever truly /

T. Carlyle
