TC TO JOSEPH NEUBERG

Chelsea, 11 May, 1854—

Dear Neuberg,

If you are come home again, and dare stand such an Adventure,—the fair Czechian Madam Noel, has volunteered to be actually here on Saturday evening; I know not who else, or whether almost any.

I am getting frightfully ill on here with my thrice-unfortunate Fritz speculation; not the least fraction of metal to be smelted out of endless square miles of scoriae, slag and misburnt ore;—I begin really to feel as if the thing must be honestly abandoned; given up as impossible in my circumstances, tho' that too is a very mortifying result to me.

Yours ever truly /

T. Carlyle
