Chelsea, 29 july, 1850—

My dear Sir,

Your little Note is so kind and hospitable, I cannot but decide to come and lodge with you as I pass thro' Bath. After some delays, Wednesday first appears to be settled as the day: the train I think of coming by, leaves Paddington at half past 12, and professes to reach Bath at 4¼. I will contrive to find Rivers Street soon after that. My Cardiff Steamer leaves Bristol at 10¼ next morning,—which, I think, means Bath by the mail train at 9¼.

My Wife returns many compliments, and is very proud to be remembered by you. Here is good weather too about to return,—and room for hoping, in this “place of Hope!”1 Till Wednesday afternoon then— —

Yours ever truly, /

T. Carlyle
