[mid-May 1828]

My Dear Sir,

You will surely come down and see me before I go? I am never occupied; or rather always—with trifles, and des choses facheuses [vexatious things]

My address is: / Craigenputtoch, / Dumfries—

I know not but I shall even now apply to you for some Book: if I do, and fail to see you, it will be by Letter. We leave this house on Wednesday night or Thursday, the Town next morning.

Will you lay out Müsaus, if you have done with it, and I will make the servant call. But come and see us!

I am always Your's, /

T. Carlyle
