Dear Sir,

If you think of calling on Mr Bruce Editor of the Gentn's Magazine, you may as well put that letter silently in the Post-office first: I have given him some kind inkling of what he may expect in you; he is an honest distinct man, “History” his province;—I have stated a kind of notice that perhaps in the line of theological or theologico-philosophical Biography (which is a departt of his Magazine) there might some relation spring up between you.

It was Espinasse that set me on writing—

In immense haste / Yours ever truly / T. Carlyle
