TC TO JOHN FORSTER

Chelsea, Tuesday [9 March 1841]—

Dear Forster,

Can you have by tomorrow about 3 o'clock the d'Israeli Charles First1 ready for me, if I manage to send?— I am running off to the Isle of Wight (where I have a Brother in these weeks); I have had the ugliest influenza, and am still fit for nothing. My detestation of the pavement has risen to kind of transcendent pitch.— I go on thursday; and am collecting a few Books to take with me.

Your unfortunate! /

T. Carlyle

You never had Ashburnham's Narrative2 I think?
