Abstract:

Concerning the manuscript of his translation of Italian poetry and its publication; discussing his own original poems, noting that the best are unfinished, and promising to send some shorter ones with the translations if he can find any that are "in any sense legible." Copying out his parody "MacCracken" (first line: "Getting his pictures, like his supper, cheap") and encouraging Allingham to read it alongside Tennyson's "The Kraken." Also copying out his sonnet "Lost on both sides" (first line: "As when two men have loved a woman well"). Discussing mutual acquaintances, including Woolner, Eastlake, Dyce, Mulready, Millais, Hunt, Hannay (and Rossetti's visit to him at Ridge), Munro, and Hughes. Discussing Miss Siddal's health at length, and promising to write about his "own doings" soon. With a postscript mentioning Anna Mary Howitt.
