TC TO RICHARD MONCKTON MILNES
Chelsea, Friday [25 February? 1842]
For devotional reasons,—yes devotional, in a sense, you profane idolatrous Puseyite!— I cannot be with you to breakfast on Sunday morning: but after breakfast I will try, and hope to succeed,—say about the noontide, or short way in the postmeridian.
It is strange to myself that I should have any regard left for such a Corn-Law Idolator!1
Yours ever (iconoclasticē)
