TC TO STEPHEN SPRING RICE

Chelsea, 5 Augt, 1842—

Kind Palinurus! 1

It does flash on me with some force of evidence that decidedly I ought to go! Tomorrow, therefore, about noon, I will endeavour to meet you at the Custom-House, with a small travelling-bag in my hand.

You shall provide tobacco, cigars, and if possible, pipes; you shall undertake to bring me back on Tuesday; and in the meanwhile sail with me whither you will.

With thanks and regards,

T. Carlyle
