Writes at length of his son Thornton and his impending visit to the Carlyles in Scotland. He lists various books and magazines he is sending: "'The Last Essays of Elia, ' you know I dare say this is the nom de guerre of Mr. Lamb ... I will send you a new translation ... of Goethe's Faust ... a treatise just published by Mr. D'Israeli on the Spirit of Judaism - a subject which, as he is of Jewish origin, it is to be supposed he may handle as much con amore, as Cobbett does, con odio." He goes on to describe Cobbett's animus against the Jews, and a recent incident involving a misunderstanding with Francis Jeffrey.
