TC TO HENRY REEVE

Chelsea, 10 April [1845]

Dear Reeve,

I wish I were going with you to Great Hampden!1 Two years ago I was near such an enterprise; but now it is far enough.

Go likewise to Chalfont St Giles's, and Horton, Milton's places;2 you can also take in Checquers where are some memorials of Cromwell;3—and then come to me and report progress.

Have you studied Lord Nugent's account of the violation of Hampden's Grave,—a horrible business. It is not in this Book, but in the Annual Register, with criticisms upon it in the Gentleman's Magazine.4

Yours ever truly /

T. Carlyle
