TC TO SAMUEL COOPER TITE

Chelsea, 19 Novr, 1853—

Very well! “Be diligent in business, fervent in spirit,”1 therefore; and let me have credit of you as a pupil!— Remember always, “The end of man is not a thought, but an action;”2 a series of manful faithful actions (and of modest, silent, steadfast endurances withal), which make up worthily a man's Life here below!—

With many good wishes and friendly regards, I remain always

Yours truly /

T. Carlyle
