|Purchased for Mr Butler at the sale of / the artist's drawings / Wm Rossetti thought this a design for / "Hamlet & Ophelia" or for The Rose / Garden. It seems to me equally / possible ['likely' crossed out] that it represents "Launcelot / & Guenevere", The Rose Garden I should / exclude altogether, / Charles Fairfax Murray; DANTE GABRIEL ROSSETTI / ONE OF TWO DESIGNS / SOLD AT CHRISTIE'S MAY 12 1883 / CATALOGUE No 61; The 2nd design a very rude / sketch of little value having no / connection it seems to me with the design for / "Found" moreover it was certainly / taken from one of his late notebooks / in which he noted down various plans / for pictures & anything that occurred / to him at the moment.
