Carzitz auf Rügen / Tuesday (28?) [31] Augt, 1858—

Dear Neuberg,

I expected to have heard from you a second time before now. Your first Note hither came on friday morning; I answered instantly, and fancied my Note might reach Berlin almost as soon as yourself. That, I now find, it wd not do; nor did I much expect a letter yesterday: but this morning I expected to have heard for certain from the British Hotel, your “Here I am!” Pray write me instantly when you do arrive.— I should not have written today; but I have an unpleasant fear my former Note may have been misdirected: “Hôtel d'Angleterre” instead of “British Hotel,” whh I find are not synonymous by any means!1

I have had a very ugly fit of biliary illness here, but am nearly got sound again under the kind care of my new friends here. For the rest, in haste exceedingly

Yours ever /

T. Carlyle
