[Venice—Friday, 5 October 1883]

Robert Browning arrived in Venice October 4, 1883. He has often said that, as long as he lived, he hoped and meant to pass a month or more in Venice every year. In 1882 he got as far as Verona, when the inundations cut off all communications with Venice, and he returned to England. This year he passed some time in a spot inaccessible but to mules and pedestrians, near Aosta—by an ascent of seven or eight hours. In Venice this year Mr Browning is lodged in an appartment [sic] connected with Casa Alvisi, opposite to the Church of la Salute, his old hotel, ‘Universo,’ being discontinued.
