TC TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES

Sir,—In reference to the subscription for the aged goddaughter of Samuel Johnson, which was announced and the case stated in The Times of Thursday last, permit me to acknowledge the receipt of 5l., which came by post next day from some friendly correspondent, who signs no name and gives no date of place, and whom I cannot, therefore, otherwise thank and identify than in this manner.1 His note reached me on Friday; his money has been paid in to the general fund at Messrs. Coutts's.

I remain, Sir, your obedient servant, T. CARLYLE

Chelsea, Nov. 5 [4 Nov. 1855]
