Abstract:

Informing her that she has "decided on travelling southwards" with the Brownings as "Paris is empty and expensive"; commenting on the famine in Ireland and Scotland; referring to the Brownings as "this charming fugitive pair"; noting Elizabeth Barrett Browning's "most feeble state"; saying she thinks she saved Barrett Browning's life by persuading her to rest; offering her opinion of their marriage: "the deportment of both is perfect, but how the experiment is to end I know not. I have not faith in the poetical temperament as a means of permanent happiness, tho it may heighten the relish of sentiment. In short, I fear ... but I hope also"; giving details of their route to Pisa.
