TC TO JOSEPH NEUBERG

Chelsea, 22 jany (Friday) 1858

Dear Neuberg,

Will you let me have tomorrow (morning, if you can), any remarks you may have put upon those Nosti-Grumkow Slips. The first set of them (3 March–18 April) has come to me this morning as a Sheet; and I expect the rest in the same form tonight: so that they will be unalterable within 24 hours after;—out of our hands and minds,—never to return, it is to be hoped!

I got home on Wednesday afternoon; have been in a confused condition ever since; and nearly buried under the accumulated masses of that vile Prussian chaos, heaped over me in the printed form. My Wife professes to continue “a little better”; but is still altogether poorly; and indeed, I believe, would be down altogether, were it not for the spirit she has in her.

Yours ever truly / T. Carlyle
