Autograph Letter Signed to John RUSKIN (1819-1900, the Writer and Critic), saying "We are so very sorry that we must not hope to see you on Sunday ... the first disengaged evening we had", however, "Mrs Barnard is coming to spend Saturday afternoon with us and I cannot think of asking you and Mrs Agnew", [Miss] Joan Agnew, Ruskin's second cousin once removed, who was his mother's companion at their home in Denmark Hill, "to drive so far again before you leave town" but if Ruskin should chance to be "in our neighbourhood about three o'clock I know she would like to sing to you", the writer hopes Mrs Barnard's song "may 'come true' by what you have said of it - You have told me quite as much ... but I shall keep that knowledge to myself, even to the point of thinking nothing, & saying nothing to you - Some people ... are in the habit of perceiving a little about others by instinct & without understanding", 3 sides 8vo., Holland Street, 'Tuesday' no date, watermark
