Dante Gabriel Rossetti letter to Ellen Heaton, 1864 October 16

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 64.138
Call Number: MSS 47

Scope and Contents

Rossetti hopes that Heaton has received the autographs and photographs he gave to Christina Rossetti to pass on to Heaton. He tells Heaton that Lady Ashburton was delighted with the Joan of Arc and Sir Galahad and was disappointed she could not have them. Rossetti says that he fears that he would "seem shabby" if he asks Heaton to purchase the work's frame and so he has ordered a suitable frame to include with the work.
