London, 30th November [1824]

My dearest,

I have no time to write a word of sense or even of nonsense to-day: these miserables are sending off a packet of magazines to Edinr; and I take the opportunity of cramming in along with them a few books for you. I hope you will get them safe and soon. One of these days I will write to you at large by Post: will you answer me the moment this comes to hand? I have got both your letters! You are very good, and mindful of me. How is your naughty head? Has the fresh air and quietude of home restored you? Heaven grant it may! Write at least, and tell me. A Dieu!

I am ever your bondsman, /

Thomas Carlyle—
