Dante Gabriel Rossetti letter to Ellen Heaton, 1864 July 18

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 64.107
Call Number: MSS 47

Scope and Contents

Rossetti hopes it will be possible to set Heaton's mind at rest about "the lily" but he is not sure he will be able to. Rossetti asks Heaton if she would prefer a drawing "of "the small figure kind to the Joan of Arc," which he would be happy to substitute for it, provided Heaton lets him know if she would like one as soon as possible. The price of the drawing would be 100 guineas. Rossetti tells Heaton that his mother is sitting for him the following day and asked if Heaton would like to join them. He tells her to come at any time of the day, that they will dine at 7 pm and that his sister, Maria and Dr. and Mrs. Hesinam will be coming in the evening.
