A letter from Horatio F Brown, who was the center of the English speaking literati in Venice at the beginning of the 20th century. His weekly 'at homes' were one of the places that a destitute Frederick Rolfe would sometimes go in search of a stray sandwich. This letter menions both his pressing need to return to Venice and his biography of John Addington Symonds which was in proof stage at this time (1894)
