Chelsea, 15 Octr, 1853—

Dear Maccall,

This Card inclosed will introduce you to Bosworth1 at any time: but I doubt he will not be inclined to engage in republications from the Critic,—tho' it is possible he may, now or subsequently, contrive something else with you.

T. Wilson,2 whom I wrote to on the matter of Weimar, seems, inclined to go himself: of course he, if he will, is by far the best we could anticipate. Failing him, I will think earnestly of Moir and then of your Diss3 man.

I earnestly hope you may find some farther success in that latest kind of Lecturing; that is evidently a much likelier field than Authorship

On Monday or soon after I expect to get a call made on Bosworth, and to speak a word to him, in case you should still appear there.

Yours always truly /

T. Carlyle
