"The Sir Galahad will be finished tomorrow. What do you like me to do with it. Would it suit you to come to see it Saturday at 12 or 1?"
Rossetti hopes that Heaton has received the autographs and photographs he gave to Christina Rossetti to pass on to Heaton. He tells Heaton that Lady Ashburton was delighted with the Joan of Arc and Sir Galahad and was disappointed she could not have them. Rossetti says that he fears that he would "seem shabby" if he asks Heaton to purchase the work's frame and so he has ordered a suitable frame to include with the work.
"Your letter has been sent on to me here. I expect to be back in another week or so. I am much pleased that the Joan of Arc pleases you. There is no alteration whatsoever in the Sir Galahad. The Joan was painted from a female model, and looks like nothing in the world but a female."
