Chelsea, 26 [25] March, 1859—

Dear Sir,

I now want a Saddle: probably you can help me in that too!1 Think what the resources known to you are, and call tomorrow.

There is plenty of confused writing ready again; no hurry abt it.— I begin to feel as if the Plan of Breslau2 wd hardly be admissible after all. It wd involve us in various similar enterprizes (Plan of Prag3 is much more requisite, if any Town is to be given; &c): so pray dont be the least particular abt this Breslau; but just let me see what it is like,—before going farther.

A fraction of sponge to stick in the head of an inkbottle: perhaps you know where that can be had? I cannot think of clipping into one of my big bathing-sponges; and there is no other resource patent in this high elevation!—

Tomorrow (Saty)4 I count on seeing you for a minute.

Yours always /

T. Carlyle
