Scholarly Commentary


The letter is devoted largely to remarks about Bruges and Ghent and the art and architecture DGR and Hunt saw on their visit. The following two poems are included as part of this letter: “Between Ghent and Bruge” and “Antwerp and Bruges”. The envelope is addressed to Collinson but the letter is clearly written to the PRB as a group.
