Chelsea, Wednesday [26 February 1840].

My dear Sir,

The Morpeth project is under way;1 Forster is to tell me the result, at Rennel's Printing Office, Little Pulteney Street2 (not far from the Quadrant), on Friday, at half past three o'clock. I wish I could contrive to have you too of the party there. Is there no place between this and that where I could take you up, a little before that hour? Hooper's shop,3 for example? Or could you contrive to be at Rennell's yourself?— It was computed that the “Meeting” should take place this day fortnight, or else this day three weeks. I beg of you not to be idle!

I saw Milnes yesterday; I am to leave some Prospectuses for him today. He seemed not indisposed to act; but needed igniting,—as so many do.—— I will try to find out Empson tomorrow; why did I not undertake to be there with you today!

Can you see Mill? Do you know where Cole haunts? Leave no stone unturned!

Yours in great haste /

T. Carlyle
