Autograph letter signed : London, to Mr. Gray by John James Ruskin( )

In reply to Mr. Gray's letter, he must explain why neither he nor Mrs. Ruskin can attend the wedding. With Mrs. Ruskin's feelings and prejudices he scarcely dares to content. He himself has had his "frame weakened and nerves unstrung" by "most of the Disorders human nature is exposed to." Although he continually stays at inns and carries on his business "pretty well," he has not slept in a friend's house in 30 years. If he were unwell she would be merely a hindrance, and if they are to go abroad with the young people, he needs every hour in London he can get. Besides, he thinks it best "to get quietly married & steal away & leave the good folk to talk over it the next day..." But though he will be absent, he will give his daughter-in-law a warm welcome. Though they may not excuse him, at his time of life and with his temperament, he must be prudent in not exposing himself to excitement. As to railroads, he will not sign a proxy sent by Lord Breadalbane, in view of Mr. Gray's letter, though he is "clannish & respectful to Nobility" and assumes that Lord Breadalbane will act honourably. Having only a small stake, he will remain neutral, preferring not to find himself opposed to the majority. If they get enough signatures to shut up on Sunday, by all means let them shut up. At the same time he protests wasting 2/6 on so many proxies when widows and children depend upon dividends

The letters of John Ruskin to Lord and Lady Mount-Temple by John Ruskin( Book )

3 editions published in 1964 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The frantic, indeed psychotic obsession of John Ruskin for a young girl named Rose La Touche constitutes probably the most terrible (and, unfortunately, protracted, and, in the end, tragic) period in the life of that Victorian genius. In recent years, the publication of previously suppressed documents relating to the affair, which ended with Rose's death in a kind of religious insanity and which contributed decisively to the madness in which Ruskin spent his last dozen or more years, has inevitably made the story one of the central points in Ruskin biography, not only because it has a quite horrid fascination of its own, but also because it throws much light on Ruskin's complex and desperately unhappy personality. These letters are documents of unusual value for the fresh light they shed on a crucial phase of Ruskin's life and for the incidental illustrations they offer of the breadth of his intellectual interests and the virtually obsessive nature of his work in many fields. Furthermore, unlike many similar collections, this one constitutes a connected drama and a coherent psychological narrative
