Craigenputtoch 14 Jany [1830]

Dear Sir

I have just got home again after a severe bustle in the town,1 and have some hopes of getting to work again—which I must do heartily to overtake what has been too long laid aside—

I have formed quite another opinion of the Schiller subject2 than those which you argued with me when we met last and I have not given my [view?] without sufficient delibe[r]ation— The letters you sent me are not without interest, but they have only confirmed me in my previous opinion. But I am obliged to you for the trouble you have taken and shall remember it gratefully. I have taken the liberty of sending them to Mr Reid who will know well how to utilize them

Yours always truly /

T. Carlyle
