Taken from letter from Carlyle to John A. Carlyle dated 7th March 1825, written at Birmingham. Pages 296-300 in this edition. See also TC's letter to Alexander Carlyle dated 4th March 1825 (pp. 291-295) for another reference to the same letter. It is not clear exactly which member of the Badams family Carlyle is referring to.
