Bodleian Library, Oxford MS Eng lett e. 118. I would like to thank the authorities of the Bodleian Library and the painter's heirs, Miss Diana Holman-Hunt and Mrs. Elizabeth Burt Tompkin, for granting permission to print these and other unpublished materials. In editing Hunt's letters for use within the following pages, I have attempted to remain as close as possible to the original. The painter's most common punctuation device is a dot placed in the position of a dash. It may signify a dash, a comma, or merely that he rested his pen while gathering his thoughts. While making as few changes as possible and employing dashes whenever they seem intended, I have supplied obviously missing words and punctuation in brackets. [Return to Christ the Pilot.]
