Chelsea, 20 April, 1844—

Dear Sir,

I return you straightway the Begg checque1 with my signature appended. Your Letter is not dated, nor decipherably post-marked; but I will suppose St Andrews still,2—there is, at worst, only danger of a little delay—

We hear all manner of good of the Begg Family and its new position in Ayrshire. Burns's youngest son3 came athwart me last night; he had been in that region last summer.

My Wife joins with me in best regards and wishes.

Always Truly Yours /

T. Carlyle
