[3 November 1829]

My Dear Brother—Here is your Review,1 and with it my best wishes that all may be well with you. I hope you have written for me against tomorrow. I long to hear what you think of Warwick, above all what you have done regarding it. Have you written to Badams? Were I as you I think I would not go to Edinr:

When are you coming hither? We had Moir for two days, but not you: he is a pleasant little fellow, and will talk with you about German travelling, and all manner of things, when you meet him. Read my Mother's Letter for her; otherwise she will never make it out. Love me always, my dear Jack, and believe me ever yours—Write, write, if you do not come. Gute Nacht Mein Bruder [Good night my brother]!

T. Carlyle
