[ca. 8 May 1848]

Dear Forster,—The Enclosed I promised shd be shewn to you, offered to you, not that you wd insert the printed part of it. M'Cormac I once saw: a big sagacious Scotch-looking Dr, who has written some philosophic Books; I believe, a man of weight and repute in Belfast.1

There ought to be ANOTHER equally ferocious Article, one on Lord Johnny and his duties! Dare you? Nay I fear it will be too big (were there no other fault) for being got in at all.2 But it must be written,—and somewhere or somehow sent into the light.

Tell me what is the latest Printer-hour for this week: friday morning?— Tell me—in fact cannot you come down to me tomorrow evg for half an hour, or appoint some rendezvous midway about 4 o'clock;—for I want much to see both on this and on “the general question.”

T. C.
