Chelsea 17 july, 1845—

Dear Christie,

You sent me an Extract from Ludlow's unpublished Mss. concerning some pretension on the part of Ashley Cooper to have married one of Cromwell's Daughters; a rumour, which from other indications, I judge may have had some foundation.1 I have unfortunately lost the Extract; and if it would not trouble you too much, should be very glad to see it again. No danger of loss by neglect, this time; for tomorrow evening I shall be at the place for using it, if it is ever to be used by me. Pray help if you can.

Yours ever truly /

T. Carlyle
