Dante Gabriel Rossetti letter to Ellen Heaton, 1864 October 3

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 64.135
Call Number: MSS 47

Scope and Contents

Rossetti tells Heaton that he will be sending the Joan of Arc by the end of the week. Rossetti hopes Heaton will like it "as everyone says it is one of my best things. I myself (entre nous) consider it superior in expression and colour to the oil picture." Rossetti has told Mr. Rose that Heaton would show him her pictures if she visited her. Rossetti tells Heaton that he is going to Paris on the advice of his doctor and asks if he can "fetch, carry or bring anything" for her. He ends by saying that the Sir Galahad will be sent to Heaton, along with the Joan of Arc.
