Chelsea, Wednesday / 12½ o'clock [6 July 1842].

Dear Forster,

A million pardons! Craik carried off your Quarterly last Sunday; and I shall have to send your Famulus round by C's house in Brompton to get it,—which will detain him some 30 or even forty minutes. Pardon, pardon!—

What is this of your illness? I will call tomorrow about 3, and look with my own eyes,—unless the elements prove too muddy.

Your Fn Quarterly is very well indeed: your German a good man;1 yo[ur] Bulwer firing away not without shot and with plenty of powder.2 Allons [Forward]!

Yours ever truly /

T. Carlyle
