Chelsea, 18 March, 1848—

Dear Forster,—Do not come tonight, should the thought even strike you; for I am going out:1 any other night, that I remember, except Thursday next,2 I am here.

You did wisely, and like a friend, to abolish that second Article.3 One was good enough: but as to a second, that was quite another question; and as to a second of such quality, there could be no question. Thanks therefore, and Euge [Bravo]!—

Pray slit me off that leaf of the Athenaeum with the Cromwell Letters, if you can, that I may preserve them: I saw but could not yet get them read.4

And now for O. Goldie Part IV.?5

Yours ever /

T. Carlyle
