4. King Street, Thursday [11 April 1833]

My Dear Sir,

I find now that I am not engaged for tonight anywhere; and that my Wife has as it were lent me out for tomorrow evening (and I believe you too, if you do not refuse) to a Lecture of Phrenologist Combe's1 on Female Education,—price only sixpence.

The two questions therefore arise: Can you receive me tonight at half past seven; and come yourself tomorrow at six? Answer the first in the affirmative, and we can settle the second at meeting. A verbal Yes will do. I should like very well to see your friend Colquhoun2 also if you will take him and can get him.

Ever faithfully, /

T. Carlyle.
