Chelsea, Friday [12 July 1844]

Dear Miss Wilson,

This evening at half-past eight or nine I will with great pleasure join you, and stay till you put me away. Dinner, alas, is beyond my faculty: to-morrow I am engaged to old Cary Dante; and two days together would entirely kill me! What would become of you then? You would have to deplore a lost Brother, not guilty towards you but unfortunate, with many tears!—

Yours ever truly

T. Carlyle
