"I hope I am in time to say -- by all means let R's [Rossetti's] picture be seen at Literary Society. I send you a silver and black frame for it -- the one I had it in. It looks well in it. Always faithfully Yrs" [Date provided by Surtees: ? February 1856]
Ruskin tells Heaton that Rossetti has received both of the works she sent for the exhibition. Ruskin reiterates that all correspondence relating to the exhibition should be addressed to Rossetti. Ruskin asks Heaton how much she would be willing to pay for a work by Turner, telling her it is likely to be between £180 to £200 and enquires whether he should secure a good work by Turner as soon as he finds one. [Date provided by Surtees: Early March 1856]
"Sadly crushed in my pocket -- the enclosed is nevertheless worth making out as you will see how R. [Rossetti] feels himself about the drawing. I have sent word to [Arthur] Hughes to send it to you instantly -- as I can't go & see it -- if there is anything shocking in it -- it is not my fault." [Date provided by Surtees: Monday 13th October 1856]
"Tomorrow -- 12, just the thing : -- we shall have a quiet hour -- at any rate. I fear I shall be interrupted at ½ past two -- but I have no better day. -- It really looks as if I did'nt care about the Dante, not to have come for it -- but I could'nt. I shall be so much obliged if you will bring it -- always faithfully Yrs." [Date provided by Surtees: Wednesday (October - November 1856)]
