Chelsea, 26 june, 1856

Dear Sir,

Thanks for your obliging Offer. If that Letter to Ireton1 is not in the Third Edition (or Second with Appendix)2 of O. C's Letters and Speeches, I shall be very glad to possess a Copy, so soon as it may please you to favour me so far.

Utmost exactitude (in spelling, punctuation &c) is requisite;—if any word remain doubtful, the best way is to send a Pencil-tracing of it on silk paper. The present possessor's name and address (unless something more is certainly known about the history of the Autograph): this is all farther that will be requisite.

Believe me Dear Sir

Yours sincerely /

T. Carlyle
