Chelsea, 5 octr, 1858—

Dear Neuberg,

My Wife came almost a week ago; seems fairly a little better than when you last saw her. I am kept incessantly spinning about in a whirl of small matters; and have seldom a minute (except in sleep) when I am fairly at leisure. Come on Sunday Evg; we will then have a little speech.

Bookseller Chapman warns me today that the Book must go to press again, “without delay, both volumes at once.” This shews what a discerning public we have;—and crowns so old a head as mine with sad remembrances and a kind of contemptuous weariness rather than otherwise. “Ach mein lieber Sulzer, Er kennt nicht &c &c [Ah my dear Sulzer, you do not know]!1—However, do not fail to bring our Errata, such as you have noted, all in precise order, that I may correct these at least, and deliver the thing out of my hands.

In these days I have found Abel's little Tract upon Names:2 I think you must let me keep that,—get it bound up with other things of a like size, to be safe and accessible. That is to say, unless another Copy for yourself is unattainable.

Yours always Truly /

T. Carlyle
