TC TO AN UNIDENTIFIED CORRESPONDENT

Chelsea, 18 june, 1853—

My dear Sir,

I am very glad to hear of your progresses and achievements in the pilgrimage of life. “He that getteth a good wife,” Solomon assures us long ago,1 has done a considerable thing!

Do not forget your promise to come down and see me. At 3 p.m. any day I am accessible here, for a walk thro' the lanes; and most evenings, except when busy.

With many hearty good wishes,

Yours always truly, /

T. Carlyle
