Venice was just recovering from the 1849 resistance against the Austrians when John Ruskin took his young wife Effie there. Each week Effie wrote to her mother in Perth, telling her of all their doings, and giving a lively pitcure of Venice, and of how people travelled the Continent at the time. The Ruskins returned to London for only eighteen months before setting out for Venice again for the winter of 1851 - 2, and the two series of Effie's letters written on their journeys and while they were there form a complete story. John Ruskin emerges not as the majestic figure of Victorian art and socialolgy, but as a young husband suffering the pangs and joys of marriage - a marriage already crumbling
Autograph letter signed : London, to Mr. Gray by John James Ruskin( )

32 editions published between 1847 and 1854 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In reply to Mr. Gray's letter, he must explain why neither he nor Mrs. Ruskin can attend the wedding. With Mrs. Ruskin's feelings and prejudices he scarcely dares to content. He himself has had his "frame weakened and nerves unstrung" by "most of the Disorders human nature is exposed to." Although he continually stays at inns and carries on his business "pretty well," he has not slept in a friend's house in 30 years. If he were unwell she would be merely a hindrance, and if they are to go abroad with the young people, he needs every hour in London he can get. Besides, he thinks it best "to get quietly married & steal away & leave the good folk to talk over it the next day..." But though he will be absent, he will give his daughter-in-law a warm welcome. Though they may not excuse him, at his time of life and with his temperament, he must be prudent in not exposing himself to excitement. As to railroads, he will not sign a proxy sent by Lord Breadalbane, in view of Mr. Gray's letter, though he is "clannish & respectful to Nobility" and assumes that Lord Breadalbane will act honourably. Having only a small stake, he will remain neutral, preferring not to find himself opposed to the majority. If they get enough signatures to shut up on Sunday, by all means let them shut up. At the same time he protests wasting 2/6 on so many proxies when widows and children depend upon dividends

Thanking him for his inquiries. "Mrs. Ruskin makes no progress but she makes a noble stand looks wonderfully well." Ruskin is at Parma, inspecting frescoes. "My own case is the worst, a very material organ having declined any longer to perform its function without frequent aid which if not given the said organ its displeasure in severe spasms--... pains night & day have taken flesh entirely away & the object now seems to be to get back more strength..." He has seen no exhibition and is not likely to, without more rapid improvement. "I do not know why they sent my sons essays away from Cornhill--They would in the end have done them service--I suspect Smith himself was the Alarmist & 100,000 was too much for his head. When the mag. touches 50,000 or 40,000 they may sight for Unto this Last... I remember weeping on reading Percevals Death--& being disgusted with a sanctimonious Whig friend writing he was glad of it."
