4. Great King-street, Monday Night— [ca. 1 April 1833]

My Dear Sir,

This very day I had peremptorily resolved on writing to you by Mrs. Welsh and her Niece from Liverpool, who leave us for Glasgow to-morrow afternoon. On returning home I found you had been here in person: by a happy chance too I have just learned your address.

Come to breakfast with us to-morrow morning, at nine o'clock; and meet old friends and new all heartily glad to see you. Perhaps I may still find you to-night, and deliver this request in person. We shall have much to ask each other.

Ever (my dear Sir) / Faithfully yours, /

T. Carlyle.
