Chelsea, 5 june, 1848—

Dear Sir,

After some delay, I have had that matter of the Dudley-Wyatt Letter and Mr Hartshorne looked into at the Museum, by a sure hand; and, last night, got final report upon it.1

The reference to “Harl. Mss. 7053,” it wd seem, leads to nothing whatever; merely indicates the place (Book, Chapter and verse) whence Hartshorne took (or rather might have taken) his Note, which he has printed accurately, without adding a word of his own, either at the beginning or the end. That is all. The “N.B.” too belongs to Harl. Mss. No 7053,—which is a Volume consisting of “detached excerpts chiefly or wholly from the Baker Mss.,” copied at what date I did not ascertain.2

Believe me / Dear Sir / Yours very truly / T. Carlyle
