Chelsea, 28 Septr, 1858

Dear Sir,— I fear to say how many “Author's Copies” I shall need, so many different people have helped me in that confused Enterprise! On the other hand, if we get to a second Editn, I promise to be extremely moderate.

The List shall be sent you in a day or two,—so soon as you are ready;—and I will call, or get the Books sent hither with your man to wait, that I may put the Autographs on them, and wash my hands of the affair. Larkin's maps, especially the last,1 are beyond all praise.2

Be so good as have at least two Copies here for me, some time in the course of Wednesday (tomorrow). I have done little else but sleep, and wash myself, since I got home out of Germany.

Yours always truly /

T. Carlyle
