TC TO JAMES COCHRANE
Chelsea, 31 jany, 1859—
Sir,—I am very sorry to hear of your sad circumstances; which are so tragically in contrast with the state of things twenty years ago, as then rumoured of to me!— I was acquainted with your late Cousin;1 and know well what his merits to the London Library were, and how skilful he was in his profession of Bibliographer,—beyond anybody I ever met in Britain or elsewhere.
Yours with real sympathy /
