[10 September 1835]

Thanks, my dear Mill, for your Note, Newspapers, and promised visit. I was yesterday in the City, with full hope of seeing you: but it proved only five minutes from four o'clock before the Moneychangers would dismiss me; when it was clearly too late.

The next note I write (in spite of all hindrances and impotences) will be that I am done with that detestable manuscript; and one of the joyfullest creatures—for some hours!

This frank, if you can fall in with one, will do very well either tomorrow or [Satur]day. I am half ashamed to trouble you with it; and designed otherwise, but [t]ime fails me this afternoon, and you have the consequence.

My Wife has gone to the Country till Saturday; really very poorly, tho' I think improving. I shall be at home at the time you speak of.

Ever Affectionately /

T. Carlyle
