Content Description

The most recent "bad" trip to Italy has affected his confidence. His health is improving although he is still weak. He must soon write his lectures for this year's Royal Academy. Discusses his recent reading. The Post Impressionist [exhibition] is "such dreadful rubbish". De Morgan is working on a new book, they lunched at the new house. They deserve some success, it seems novels do pay. He has given one of the St. Paul's cartoons to Toronto Museum, the Director wanted one to encourage decorative art in Canada. Hunt has died, his art will out live the "common rubbish" of today. He has talked about old times with Meo.

Nasty sticky tape had been used to hold two halves of the letter together.
