Chelsea, 29 july, 1851—

Dear Sir,

You will see the Titlepage itself in a day or so: I have just finished the last of the Proof-slips (clearly within the required limit of pages, you will rejoice to know); and have sent a Titlepage to Robson,—“Life of John Sterling” (or John Sterling's Life) “by—” and that is all.

I suppose you will not publish for a month or more. One of these days it is possible word may come from America for an Early Copy; but Robson himself can furnish that,—the rest to lie strictly dead for the space of a Steamer or two.

I am off on Saturday to Malvern for a Water-Cure. I shall at any rate be out of the reach of Koh-i-Nigger, or the Mountain of Darkness and his foolish glaziery!1

Yours always truly /

T. Carlyle
