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
