Dear Forster,—Please keep a sharp eye on that Document;1 for it seems to me somewhat shaky, in its present form! I can do little at correcting it, having no Original to refer to.— — The Alphabetic arrangement,2 I should say, is not of much importance,—perhaps not of any? Certainly of none, in comparison to perfect accuracy of designation.— Well, well; one pull more, my unfortunate friend; and we are thro' it forever!— Monday 5½ for 6 we shall hear farther. Adieu.— T. C.

Haste, Haste,—I, not the Paper!
