Chelsea, 3 March, 1853—

Dear Neuberg,

The Prints are come; arrived at Bath House of their own accord today; and are now (also of their own accord, and by make rather!) lying here. A thin Parcel, in oilskin; weighing some 3 lbs or so,—charge £1.7.0. Safe, but excessively dear! I have not yet looked into the ware itself:—but write to say that, of course, there is nothing farther to be done by you till you hear from me again.

I am about appointing Doyle to meet me on Saturday afternoon; the Lady herself is to be in town on Monday evening: after that, I suppose, the thing will be finished, or all ready for finishing.

This is a mistake of about a sovereign, this of sending the Parcel by Post; but happily that is all, and it might have been worse. The Duplicates we will return, I conclude, by Nutt and Asher of Berlin.1

Yours ever truly /

T. Carlyle
