5. Great Cheyne Row, Chelsea, / Tuesday [8 July 1834].

My Dear Sir,

We can give you a bed here; and shall be very happy to see you, on Thursday night, the earliest of the terms you mention. Our tea is at six o'clock: but a cup of coffee shall stand hot for you till your own hour.

You get into an omnibus at the Whitehorse Cellar in Piccadilly; and say “5. Chainie Row” (for that is the way to pronounce it), which like a magic formula will (for sixpence) bring you to this door. The omnibus has “Chelsea” and “Chancellor” printed on it; such run at all hours.

Come as early as you can.

Affectionately Yours, /

T. Carlyle—
