Haddington, 31st May, 1824—

My dear Sir,

I find it will not be possible for me to be in Edinburgh till Thursday; and accordingly I must put you you [sic] to the expence of a letter on the subject of these Author's Copies. Eight I could wish you to send to Whitaker, directed to the care of the Revd Edward Irving, 4. Middleton-terrace, Pentonville, London, to be delivered at the Bookseller's convenience. Other two you will oblige me by sending out hither, directed to Mrs Welsh, Haddington: I hope to receive them to-morrow; there are coaches at 9, at 3, at 4 o'clock. The remaining ten you can leave among your own, till I call on Thursday-night, and relieve you. Wishing every success in this our joint adventure, and in all your enterprising speculations in the trade of letters, I remain,

Dear Sir, / faithfully Yours, /

Thomas Carlyle—
