TC TO RICHARD MONCKTON MILNES

Chelsea, 18 june [1853]—

Dear Milnes,—If you do want to see that stupendous product of human ingenuity here so concisely touched upon, it is much at your service, if I could meet you with it, anywhere, or if any servant (in defect of yourself) wd call for it.1

The Era of Mooncalves, omne cum P[r]oteus pecus egit altos2 &c, has arrived upon us, for our sins! Yours / T. Carlyle
