TC TO DAVID AITKEN

[17 February 1827]

My Dear Sir,

I with great pleasure send you the “few lines”;1 and along with them my truest wishes for your success; wishes not ungenerous in themselves, as to us selfishly speaking your success can only be loss.

Let us know the moment any thing is fixed: my Wife is no less anxious than I.

Believe me ever, / Most truly Your's /

T. Carlyle—
