TC TO JAMES BALLANTINE
Chelsea, London / 15 june, 1842—
Accept my thanks for your kind gift of the Book called Gaberlunzie's Wallet;1 wherein I already find very gratifying traces of a lively faculty, of much openness, simplicity and geniality of nature, which, whether it succeed in this adventure or not, seems well calculated to do good service one day.
Recommending patient constant endeavour, and wishing you the best speed,
I remain, / Yours with many thanks
