William Morris

Letter to Aglaia Coronio


This letter is the most personal item in the Archives and Rare Books collection. Aglaia Coronio was a close friend of Morris, but the tone of the letter is far from confidential; he barely acknowledges his struggles through the height of his wife’s affair with Rossetti.
