Chelsea, Feby 14th [1839]

My dear Sir,

Could you return this Newspaper fragment of the Socinian Pope to Mr Coolidge, lest I lose it in the interim.1 Doubtless also he and you would like to see the Posion,2 now that you are fortified with the Antidote. Here it is, strong as Prussic acid; in my hand for a week past.

If I knew Mr Coolidge's Address, I would call for his Lady3 and him, as it is my part to do. My Wife has caught cold, and is not equal to any call, beyond a few yards distance, at present.

We calculate on seeing you soon; and wish you always right well.

Yours very truly /

T. Carlyle—
