Description
Contains Nash's expressions of affection for Margaret and mentions Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Also includes a quote from Rossetti's sonnet 'Nuptial Sleep' that reads:
'Sleep sank them lower than the tide of dreams
And their dreams watched them sink, and slid away.
Slowly their souls swam up again through gleams
Of watered light and dull drowned waifs of day;
Till from some wonder of new woods and streams
He woke, and wondered more: for there she lay.'
Includes envelope.
