Dante Gabriel Rossetti letter to Ellen Heaton, 1863 October 14

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 63.92
Call Number: MSS 47

Scope and Contents

Rossetti admits he still does not know exactly when he will need Dante's Dream but that it is likely he will require it before the end of the month. He says he will write as soon as he knows the exact time. Rossetti is perturbed by Heaton's reports of changes in his drawing and hopes that they are a result of the positioning of the pieces or how Heaton is looking at them. He says the "darkened" white in the St George should be easily and permanently remedied and suggests that Heaton send him the St George alongside the Dante's Dream, so that he might fix it. Rossetti says he has not seen Burne Jones since his return and so cannot know what he thinks about the matter.
