Mem. For Mr Menzies, Edinr1

2 Copies of Carlyle's Frederick, to the respective Addresses:
1O “Mrs Austin, The Gill, Cummertrees” &c
and 2O “Mr Carlyle, Scotsbrig, Ecclefechan”:—

Be so good as wrap them into one Parcel, addressed “Mr Carlyle Scotsbrig Ecclefechan” (2d of the already given addresses); carry said Parcel across to the Caledonian Railway Station and despatch:—it will, once started, get to its place in four hours, after lying about 5 weeks in its present Quarters!

Chelsea, 1 Novr, 1858

N. b. If NO 2 is gone (whh I doubt), despatch NO 1 with its own address from same place;—and buy a Bradshaw or Murray2 for future use!
