Addiscombe Farm, Croydon / 4 May 1858—

Dear Neuberg,

I am glad to hear of Tauchnitz1 again; and you have done very well to send him a sheet &c at once. Chapman had no commission, except to answer Williams & Norgate with a “Never!” Which he did; and the matter has lain in that state for a good few months back. So that you find it now exactly where you left it; and I wish you to conduct it to a conclusion, Tauchtz and you without any Wms & Norgate, the best you can;2 and Chapman will furnish a Copy so soon as it comes to that.

May is very green out here, but damp today and cold, inviting to a swift ride. This Country is full of beauty again, but also of sad remembrances to all of us!3— My Wife seems to be doing well; we are to be altogether quiet; and expect to be home, somewhat improved, on Monday.

Yours ever truly T. Carlyle
