Chelsea, 25 feby, 1858—

Dear Neuberg,

Schlubhut is in this Book VIII; I retold him yesterday in the printed state!1 So that there is nothing more to be said on that head.

Your main outlook in Book IX will be abridgement; to suggest what cd best be left out. I do not well remember what. Rhine Campaign is somewhat too bulky: but the Polish Troubles ought to be made intelligible, too; and we cannot spare the Interview with Wilha:2—there are some Letters I think of Frh (towards the end of the Campaign) whh might perhaps be handily got out? “Handily”; that is a great point, for I am too disgusted to remodel that chaotic rubbish. Anything that ought to go out (of its own accord), of course the door is wide-open for that. Keep the best eye you can upon it; and report with candid severity.— We look for you on Sunday Evg; tho' there is no need whatever that you shd have finished the job then.

Names of Places in the Rhine-Cn, for Larkins's sake. Yours ever truly

T. Carlyle
