TC TO JANE WELSH CARLYLE

I take the Purse, for better or worse,Unused to trade, and sore afraid
Lest I mistaken be,
I take the Purse, for better or worse,
And yield it, Dear, to thee!

T. Carlyle

25 decr, 1847—

All good attend my Darling, thro' this dim gulf of Time, and thro' the big Ocean it is leading to. Amen, Amen.
