Content Description

He is laid up with a nasty leg sore. Concerning Tom's love for a "dear Lady", he urges that Tom reveal its existence to papa. It would be better for both of them if he did so; and he for one would love her like a sister. He dreads returning to England. He is sorry to here that [George Richmond] is again undertaking restoration work, as it takes him away from "real work". His Roman life is quiet, he goes to the theatre now and then, plays billiards a little and smokes a good deal. He sees a lot of Leighton, who is a genius, though spoilt.
