Sure. Like this (untested):
r1text=`cat r1` # backticks, not single quotes
sed "10s/$/$r1text/" file.txt
Note double quotes (") instead of single quotes ('); that lets parameter
substitution ($r1text) take place in the sed argument. Then, because $
now starts a parameter, you need to escape the $ you are using for "end
of line", so it becomes "$" instead of "$". The result is that sed's
first argument becomes:
as you intended.
