Dante Gabriel Rossetti letter to William Houghton Clabburn, 1864 December 4

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 6
Call Number: MSS 31

Scope and Contents

"My dear Clabburn

I saw Legros who tells me he would paint the companion picture from the lithograph with pleasure, & would sell the 2 landscapes for 50 guineas, framed.

You will receive the drawing of the Death of St. Francis in a day or two, & I will get his receipt for you in return for the cheque - 25 guineas. You must know I have generally been his business secretary, but he will have another now I dare say, as he has got married.

I am very sorry to have seen so little of Mrs. Clabburn & yourself this time, but hope that she will really give me other chances as she said. I will have [?] an eye to ramshackle properties of all kinds on her behalf.

Ever yours

DG Rossetti"
