[Venice—Monday, 22 June 1891]

Miss Browning went by appointt with Mrs Curtis to our garden. Sd they saw Mrs Orr’s book at 4th revise & in great haste. Asked her to leave out some things—wh. she did—but evidently disliked it—so B’s let the rest go. Sd Mr Barrett’s objection had nothing to do with Mrs B’s health—was just as opposed to marriages of Henrietta & Alfred who were well.– Absurd to describe her brother as ‘a nervous man’—or his death to a cold– He had a cold, but it was the heart.
