TC TO THOMAS WOOLNER

Chelsea, May 21, 1851.

DEAR SIR

If you will come to us, to tea, on Monday night (the old hour) I have good hopes of producing Mr. Ruskin for you. Unluckily, however, it is not quite positive. Mr. R. is out of town and not absolutely certain to be back before Monday; but my Wife will write to you early that day if things turn in the negative, so if you hear nothing farther, come along: If you do hear, I expect it will be the proposal of some new evening for the object in question. The Medallion is favourably hung up; and excites the approbation of a discerning public—as it deserves to do.

Yours always truly,

T. CARLYLE.
