TC TO JOSEPH NEUBERG
Chelsea, 28  May, 1859—
Will you be so beneficent as take this German gentleman1 in hand, and try to do for him what the sacred duties command.
He seems to want a couple of Notes from Humboldt2 translated into English,—“a most vital service,” he seems to intimate. But as he cannot speak one word of English, as as3 I have not half a moment of time, I can make nothing of him, and must roll him over upon you.
To me he brought no kind of introduction (merely got tumbled in); but he seems to be a very innocent little creature.
Yours always /
Friday 3.20 p.m,—in endless haste
