TC TO J. W. PARKER

Chelsea, December 6th, 1849.

DEAR SIR,

There is a considerable mass of dislocated papers, definable as ‘written rubbish’ for most part, now lying here, which must gradually get itself arranged into some form or other, by printing or else by burning: but I find nothing that could handily be got ready for your next number; nor indeed do I think the matter would in general be very suitable for that vehicle.

The four copies of the Negro Question came duly yesterday: thanks for such punctuality.

Yours always truly,

T. CARLYLE.
