Chelsea, 2 Novr, 1857—

Dear Neuberg,

I forgot to ask last night, How you were off for time at present? Perhaps driven, almost like the rest of us? In which case, never mind what is to follow here.

The fact is, vol xii of the “Works1 needs Summary and Index, like what you did for Lr Day Pamphlets (to be ready, say, in 6 weeks): if you have time, you will do it better than another;—but if you have not, it must take such an artist as it can get. Tell me, please. For there is now no time to be lost.

I am just about opening your late Packet,—by candle light,—with a shudder!

Yours always truly / T. Carlyle
