TC TO RICHARD MONCKTON MILNES

Chelsea, Friday [26 March or 2 April 1841]

Dear Milnes,

If you really do want me to go with you, come down hither, and tell me practically in reasonable words what the possibilities, limitations, difficulties, laws and conditions of the enterprise are: I will then answer you Yes or No,—most probably, Yes. I am at home tonight; I will wait for you tomorrow till half past one. If you like neither of these dates, name another.— Or perhaps, incurable Hoaxer, you do not mean to go at all, even yourself? Vatene falso Cagliostraccio!1 / Yours with more regard than you / deserve, / T. Carlyle
