TC TO LADY STANLEY

Chelsea, 6 March, 1851—

Dear Lady Stanley,

For the last four-and-twenty hours I am quite smitten down with a violent inroad of influenza, which has all at once broken out on me like the Irish Rebellion1 40,000 strong: if I can subdue that in time (of which there is good hope, and if not you shall hear to the contrary) then sure enough I will do my endeavour to see your Ladyship's beautiful self and society on Tuesday Evg.2

Yours ever truly /

T. Carlyle
