Chelsea, 5 Octr, 1858—

Dear Chorley,

They are going to print that Book again, to start almost immediately: we will have a great many hyphens cut out of it, for one thing; “Old-Dessauer”1 and and2 some others!—

If you can give me any help in regard to more important errors (one or two I myself am aware of, thanks to you for one), now of course is the time. Both Volumes are to go on together, it wd appear; but we will take what time is necessary,—were the hurry still greater than I believe it is.

Epecially3 if you had any general rule (about hyphens or other things) to give the Printer, I shd like to see it,—for he is a man Capable of understanding such a thing, & following it.

I have been in a whirl of hurries, with a great many small matters, ever since my return; but hope to see you soon after so long an absence.

Yours ever truly /

T. Carlyle
