 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 64.62
Call Number: MSS 47

Scope and Contents

Rossetti is having his mother and sister for dinner the following day and hopes Heaton will attend. Rossetti has been so busy that he has not made any changes to Bethlehem Gate but says that if it is not retouched by dinner, it will be by Monday (the 16th). Rossetti expresses his annoyance about the photograph (presumably the one of Dante's dream to be taken by Ruskin). Rossetti tells Heaton that his pencil drawing for her will be framed and ready for its conveyance to Leeds by the next day. Rossetti expresses his approval of Heaton's plans to secure some mounted drawings by Alphonse Legros.
