Chelsea, 10 june, 1851—

Dear Sir,

There is another of those Medallions wanted; and I am to negociate with you for the person interested.

First the Medallion itself; then I will request you to get it framed, just as ours here is; next to have it packed safely in a little box, and sent to the Euston-square Railway with the address “Mrs Aitken, Assembly Street, Dumfries, N.B” (by “Goods Train”),—paying the Carriage: after which, if you will please to send me the Account, the affair will be finished forthwith. I am a little ashamed to trouble you with all these details beyond your own part of the business; but I am not sure of getting them so effectually done by any other method,—not to say that it is far the easiest for me, and that you are very obliging. Pray have the thing managed (Account and all), as soon as possible.1

I am anxious Mrs Aitken should have a good Copy; for she knows the Original well;—and has seen the Copy already sent into that part of the world.

I hope you have seen Ruskin again, and are getting on handsomely. Let us see you again soon.

Yours ever truly /

T. Carlyle
