Chelsea, 6 feby, 1859—

Dear Madam,

I very well remember your goodness to me; I have to thank you again for a pretty Book,1—which I believe will do good to all that read in it: a thing one cannot say of many Books now going. My vote is you have made a clearly superior use of your leisure hours in doing such a work, and you have done it well, whh was not quite easy either.

I beg to return you many thanks and respects and good wishes; and am sincerely

Your Ladyship's much obliged,

T. Carlyle
