TC TO JOHN FORSTER
Chelsea, 12 April, 1853—
My Better Half is out; for my own share, I say Saturday,1 and (decisively) Tea at half past seven. Tea (especially with tobacco) is infinitely the preferable meal for the wretched person now addressing you!
If you hear nothing farther, therefore, let this be considered a fixed thing.
Yours ever truly / T. Carlyle2
