Pentonville, 23d June [1824]

Dearest— I never was so baited in my life for time: I am just about setting off for Kew, from which long ere this reaches you I shall have written a long account of my wanderings. A Mr Hamilton brings up this little book to Edinr from which it has strayed so far. In about a month I shall send you some more books (in Mr Bradfute's parcel) and among them the last part of the Life of Schiller. The miserables have cut it into two pieces, one of which (not worth a doit) is out in July. When it is all printed you shall see it. How many thousand things have I to tell you! How many thoughts and prayers do I daily send after you! I will not whimper: we shall meet again.

My best compliments to your Mother. Write, write whenever this may reach you. Adieu meine Eigene [my very own]!

I am ever your's, /

Th: Carlyle
