TC TO RICHARD MONCKTON MILNES

Chelsea, 23 Novr, 1844—

Dear Milnes,

You will do us a real kindness if you will come down tomorrow evening (Sunday), and give us news of yourself and of the world. I am visible from half past two o'clock to all that will come and look at me; but few come whom I care to look at. My Wife is at home all morning; often in this bad weather, all day. We sit over books, or the like, in the evening; and are glad of the face of a Friend.1

Tomorrow evening, or any evening.

Yours ever truly /

T. Carlyle
