When retired lecturer Linda Freeman spent three weeks in London this past September, among other places she visited was the home of 19th-century writer and sage, Thomas Carlyle. In the room that was Carlyle’s study at the top of the house, she was delighted to find prominently displayed the 1982 book, “The Correspondence of Thomas Carlyle and John Ruskin," edited by the late professor George Allan Cate.
