"1863 Nov 19, London; Concerning his arrangements for delivering the picture to Mr. Blackmore and referring to a few changes which he thinks have improved it. A long postscript explains the inscription on the frame, with the lettering not quite dry. It was taken from a poem of Fazio degli Uberti's included in the artist's "Early Italian Poets," and he gives a translation of it. Suggestions for the best lighting for this painting."
