My dear Sir,
I owe you a very particular apology for this long delay; but I have been hoping, from hour to hour, to see Carlyle, & nominate your day of meeting, & time has been torn out of my hands by twenty unforseen things, & I have not even yet seen him. I beg your pardon for this, & your kind patience for a few days longer, when the distractions, at the mercy of which I am at present, must terminate. Meantime I return the Journal, rejoicing to see you in hands at once so respectful & able, & much pleased to find a very welcome collateral defense of myself, from the rashness of a critic, unacquainted with what he undertakes to characterize. Many thanks
