Dante Gabriel Rossetti letter to Ellen Heaton, 1863 June 1

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 63.62
Call Number: MSS 47

Scope and Contents

Rossetti suggests that Heaton and Mrs. Gurney postpone their visit until he is better prepared as he does not have much work to show them. Rossetti says he will have more work, including "your Beatrice," at a more advanced stage later (actually a reference to The Beloved -- see Fredeman). Rossetti tells Heaton he will arrange an appointment for Heaton to meet Mr. Rose when Rose visits Rossetti the following day.
