[Mid-June 1835]

My Dear Sir,

Arthur Coningsby's Father and Mother1 are expected to Tea with us tomorrow evening; also the mathematical Mrs Sommerville,2 and perhaps John Mill; all of them well affected towards you, and good people as people go. Will you come too, and do as [sic: us] all a real kindness? Say “Yezzir”; or what were better (for I am quite idle and solitary) come over straightway, and say it with the lips.

Here is Kean3 again, with many thanks.

Your's always, /

T. Carlyle
