TC TO JOHN STORES SMITH

Chelsea, 13 April, 1851—

Dear Sir,

I am sorry we missed you last Sunday; doubly so, as I find now I have forgotten even to write!

Of course I accept with great pleasure the honour of being a vicepresident:1—I remember too that I owe you a guinea; and will duly pay it the first time I am lucky enough to see you here.

Excuse my oblivions; and believe me

Yours ever truly /

T. Carlyle

John Stores Smith Esq
