George Moulton-Barrett : letter to Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Elizabeth Barrett Browning to Arabella and Henrietta Moulton-Barrett (sisters), 2 October 1846, on receiving her father and brother's responses to her marriage: 'The delay of the week in Paris brought me to the hour of my death warrant at Orleans [...] Robert brought in a great packet of letters [...] He wanted to sit by me while I read them, but I would not let him [...] I got him to go away for ten minutes, to meet the agony alone [...] And besides it was right not to let him read -- -- They were very hard letters, those from dearest Papa & dearest George'. '
