Venice was just recovering from the 1849 resistance against the Austrians when John Ruskin took his young wife Effie there. Each week Effie wrote to her mother in Perth, telling her of all their doings, and giving a lively pitcure of Venice, and of how people travelled the Continent at the time. The Ruskins returned to London for only eighteen months before setting out for Venice again for the winter of 1851 - 2, and the two series of Effie's letters written on their journeys and while they were there form a complete story. John Ruskin emerges not as the majestic figure of Victorian art and socialolgy, but as a young husband suffering the pangs and joys of marriage - a marriage already crumbling

In reply to Mr. Gray's letter, he has consulted a man of sound judgment about railroad shares, who advises people who can meet calls without selling to hold their shares because all railroad property is below value, but otherwise to well. If Mr. Gray bought 200 shares of Boulogne, J. J. Ruskin has little hope of his getting clear, he having considered himself venturous to buy 25. As to keeping Mr. Gray's "situation private," he heard that Mr. Gray was a ruined man six months ago. What distresses Mr. Ruskin is Mr. Gray's having to go into bankruptcy, thus losing the confidence of the county of Perth and perhaps two-thirds of his business. He is also "sorely vexed" at Mr. Gray's "taking this time to disturb the young people..." John cannot help, knowing that if he were "to be security for a single hundred for the best friend he has--he should never see a shilling more of my money--" He himself gets so upset when he hears about speculation that he would almost beg Mr. Gray not to mention such affairs to him or to John or, if he dare presume, to Effie. He is nervous and easily made ill, and his health is of some consequence to John and Phemy. Yet he would be obliged if Mr. Gray could postpone for a few months his winding up, after which he would be prepared for the worst. He concludes that Mr. Gray's house is as good as gone. Although John will write in a different strain, he is "naturally annoyed" that all this should come on the young people. It would have been better to have told him in October or November than just on the point of consummation. He went through the same sort of thing with his brother-in-law "whom I used to tell when he boasted of his property that I did not value any man in Perth at fifty shillings."

Noting that Ruskin is nearly at the end of writing Modern Painters V but did not wish to receive proof till the composition was complete. Because Smith & Elder lay great stress on the book's appearing in May, correction must begin by Saturday, the 28th. Therefore on Saturday Mr. Harrison will receive the "10 sheets 160 pages" already in print "which you will greatly oblige by looking over with your quick & critical Eye," sending them to Ruskin one, two, or three sheets at a time, as may suit his convenience. No one outside his own family should see the sheets," as it is desired to run the work quietly and quickly through the press. My son hopes 20 days may suffice" [Modern Painters V issued 14 June 1860]. May they have the pleasure of his company at dinner on Sunday?

Hoping that Mr. Harrison's drive did him good; John James Ruskin was glad to have missed him when he called today. He is having sent him twelve dozen bottles of fine sherry, which he hopes will help him, if taken to order. But only persevering exercise and air can cure jaundice--a "most dread and dreary malady," as John James Ruskin realized through having known it once in his own life. "Can you give me a single line to enable me to tell John how you are?"

Thanking him for his inquiries. "Mrs. Ruskin makes no progress but she makes a noble stand looks wonderfully well." Ruskin is at Parma, inspecting frescoes. "My own case is the worst, a very material organ having declined any longer to perform its function without frequent aid which if not given the said organ its displeasure in severe spasms--... pains night & day have taken flesh entirely away & the object now seems to be to get back more strength..." He has seen no exhibition and is not likely to, without more rapid improvement. "I do not know why they sent my sons essays away from Cornhill--They would in the end have done them service--I suspect Smith himself was the Alarmist & 100,000 was too much for his head. When the mag. touches 50,000 or 40,000 they may sight for Unto this Last... I remember weeping on reading Percevals Death--& being disgusted with a sanctimonious Whig friend writing he was glad of it."
