 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 64.150
Call Number: MSS 47

Scope and Contents

Rossetti will send Heaton's Sir Galahad today. He asks Heaton not to tell anyone the price of the Joan of Arc as "it would have been considerably higher had it been sold when finished instead of by commission.". Rossetti states that the letter Heaton mentioned in a previous letter is a Whistler and the one signed "Ned" is a Jones and mentions that he had asked Christina Rossetti to describe them to Heaton. He ends: "Lady Ashburton has not gone fasting through the fact of my artistic provender here being all bespoke. She has given me several commissions, one being a small Joan of Arc."
