4. Ampton Street, / Mecklenburg Square, Wednesday Night [5 October 1831]—

My Dear Sir,

Not precisely knowing your place of residence, I cannot call; but only write to remind you that I am still in the neighbourhood, and that your company will always be welcome. Mrs Carlyle, who has now joined me, having faith in my testimony, is also prepared to receive you as one known to her.

Could you come on Friday Evening at half past six? You will find us alone, engaged with Coffee; and shall have leave to go when your hour comes.

Believe me always,

Faithfully Your's, /

Thomas Carlyle
