5. Cheyne Row, Chelsea, / 11 December, 1836—

Dear Sir,

It would give me much pleasure to meet you again; and I surely hope we shall,—if not by the kind plan you propose, yet by some other that will offer itself.

At present I am so excessively occupied, and independently of that, nay indeed partly by reason of that, in such an inflammatory, catarrhal, atrabiliar state of health, that I dare not venture out at night except under manifold conditions.

With compliments to Mrs Wedgwood,1

I remain, / Dear Sir, / Your's truly /

T. Carlyle.
