Chelsea, 13 Octr, 1842

Thanks, Dear Sir, for your kindness in these Antiquarian matters. I will look for the Biography of Moll,1 some day when I go to the Museum. Vermuyden2 is not of farther moment to me: some information about him, or evidence that some was to be had,—either of these results was about alike welcome to me. Thanks specially for Archee:3 he too seems one of the Nugae Antiquae [Antique trifles] that have sunk deep, beyond the reach of any boathook,—why not!

Your Camden-Society Book4 was about the most entertaining piece of Antiquarianism I remember to have read. Another like it, so soon as may be!

Yours with thanks & wishes

T. Carlyle
