Abstract:

Informing Severn that the Talbots left Venice because "he married his second wife only six months after the death of his first, who was her sister." Discussing Francesca's eyesight, and describing their life in Venice. Noting that their upstairs neighbor has three dogs, and that Swett "thought of buying them with a view to giving them a permanent bath in the canal." With a postscript on an enclosure discussing "that strange affair of K.O.," Kathleen Olander, hoping that she gives Severn and Ruskin no "farther annoyance," but noting that "she may marry him yet in spite of [Severn] and even in spite of [Ruskin]."
