Cheyne Row, Thursday Night [11 June 1835]

My Dear Sir,

Here are the Notes I spoke of: take them, and “Luck by the way!”1 The Manse (Parsonage) of Minto2 is about as near Jedburgh (Scottice “Jeddart”) as it is to Hawick; but the latter I think is on your route from Carlisle northward: it is the place for you to stop at.— If you go by Dumfries, step over to the Courier Office; ask for Mr Macdiarmid the Editor,3 mention my name to him, and he will give you all light he has.

The John Jeffrey Edinr is the late Review Editor's Brother;4 knows Boston and New England; is a very kindly man. Inglis5 (pronounce Ingles) is of your own age, a Lawyer too; and good Scotch specimen of a man.— If Fleming & Hope be not now in Brunswick Street (Glasgow), ask anybody. Hope6 is a Merchant and countryman of mine.

We shall hope to see you yet many times before you cross “the unfruitful Sea”:7 our good wishes go with you on this side of it and on that.

Very Truly Your's /

T. Carlyle
