Never mind the letter to the Geological Society; the museum got the book for Carlyle.
If you have not already written me the letter, never mind, as the obliging sub Lib of the Museum went to the Geolog: & did the necessary.
It is really wondeful the trouble Carlyle takes for such a minute point— I have had 4 or 5 letters & he has probably written half a dozen besides
