[Venice—ca. 5 December 1885]

Browning writes from London Dec. 3 [‘]‘My buying a Palace in Venice makes more talk than if I had written an Epic!”

<The palace fell through—by chicane of the Montecuculi & B. bought house in Kensington instead. He cannot get over it, at all, & ’88 continues to relate every detail at great length & quite often[.]>[1]

1. The passage in angle brackets was added in 1888.
