Excerpt from book:
CHAPTER IV RIOGRAPHICAL—(conti'nuecT) (Mainly 1886-1893) Letters to Mrs. W. M. Rossetti—Correspondence with the Rev. Alfred Gurney—Her humour in a letter to Mr. Shields and in letters to Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Rossetti—Poem on the death of the Duke of Clarence—Article on Tudor House in ' Literary Opinion.'

' My dear Lucy,— I cannot hear of such bereavement among almost your nearest circle without writing to remind you of my love and sympathy. Aunt Eliza unites with me in good will and sympathy and in love to our nieces and nephew. I had not the slightest idea such a blow was imminent. Poor Cathy ! [Mrs. Hueffer] I ventured to send her a few flowers to-day. William came this morning looking as you may suppose, much concerned, and anxious on your account. Dear Lucy, reassure us by bearing the shock bravely and resignedly. Something led me to mention the death to Mr. Stewart (my Aunts' medi...
