Dante Gabriel Rossetti letter to William Houghton Clabburn, 1865 May 3

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 10
Call Number: MSS 31

Scope and Contents

"My dear Clabburn,

Thanks for the £70 completing payment in full for the Magdalene picture, which will be done by the time named if not sooner. I shall be very glad to see you when in town, & hope you may be accompanied by Mrs. Clabburn.

The Academy lectures [?] are generally "much of a muchness" I fear. I suppose, as things go, the Athenaeum is likely to be as tolerable as any. I have not yet seen the Exhibition myself. Sandys's picture is in one of the best places, and Whistler & Legros are well placed. Indeed the hanging this year is I believe better than usual.

With kind regards I am yours sincerely DG Rossetti"
