TC TO JOHN FORSTER

Chelsea, 10th June [1839]

My dear Sir,

Here are your Books again, with many cordial thanks. We are for Scotland soon, till the hot weather be over. I think of calling some day, to make a new forage among your Book-shelves before that. I am a Rob Roy in Books; and levy “black-mail” on all my friends.1— When is the concluding Cromwell to be out?2

Spedding is at length about promulgating his Library Program.3 He will send you some copies; entreating your good offices.

I remain always / Yours most truly / T. Carlyle
