Chelsea, 27 july, 1850—

Alas, dear Forster, I am going off on Monday, towards Wales; greatly broken down indeed;—to see if I can find three weeks of sleep, at least of silence somewhere! When I am to return is not settled. I go to Scotland first; and perhaps even farther before I return.

Good be with you always, dear Forster; a right kind remembrance remains with me of all your kindness to me, and will remain.

Yours ever truly /

T. Carlyle

Perhaps I shall see Landor in passing thro' Bath; I mean to try. My ulterior destination is the Coast of Glamorganshire, with the benevolent Gaius1 (a very silent man withal) of whom you have heard me speak as looking over to me from those parts. Mrs C. for the present continues here.— Adieu, dear F.—
