4. Myddelton Terrace, Pentonville / Monday [12 July 1824]—

My dear Sir,

I have thoughts of publishing that Life of Schiller1 augmented with notes extracts &c in a separate shape; and being badly in want of materials for illustrating my subject, I make bold to apply to you for aid in the affair. Could you have the goodness to send me a list of any books (with notice where they may be found) that could serve me? I have seen only Doering's Life of Schiller,2 and Körner's;3 and Schillers works. I shall also solicit your mature criticism when you have perused the whole Article.4 May I expect to hear from you soon? I leave town this week.5

Believe me always, / My dear Sir, / Most sincerely Yours, /

Thomas Carlyle—
