5. Cheyne Row, Chelsea Wedy Evg [21 April 1858]

Dear Sir,

Your man has just delivered me your Note and the Picture of Frederick the Great;1 for which distinguished act of politeness I can in the mean time only return many thanks. I will have the case opened in the course of tomorrow; and then write farther. I much fear there has some slight breakage taken place (a bit of the frame most probably,—got in the railway, the men say); but I will write farther so soon as I have seen.

For the present, with my sincere thanks for so unusual a favour, I remain,

Yours very sincerely obliged

T. Carlyle
