Call Number: MSS 47
Scope and Contents: Rossetti has received an offer for The beloved and asks Heaton if she is no longer interested in the work.

Rossetti asks if he could paint her something else and says he has not forgotten the £50 she has given him for a painting of Beatrice. Rossetti has found a partly completed picture of his wife in...
