TC TO RICHARD MONCKTON MILNES

[10 August 1853]

Dear Milnes,—Go and call for this young Lady, and return yr ms in a handsome manner!1— The second Ms here referred to, I retain, to save you trouble; item a Letter to Panizzi from Everett,2 testifying that Miss Delia (which is true) has fine qualities, the purest character, and wants to see Mss abt Shakespeare.—— In one word, go you and call with your Ms., and that will handsomely end it.

We are much grieved for poor Mrs Milnes;3 but hope the worst is now over.— Ever yours T. Carlyle

Chelsea, Wedny
