Four letters to Story from Leigh Hunt, and one from Ralph Waldo Emerson; and one letter to Emelyn Story from Margaret Fuller. The Hunt letters are friendly notes touching on a variety of subjects including his health and Mrs. Hunt's, publication of selections of his work, etc. The Emmerson letter, 1851, is in connection with Browning's reminiscences of Margaret Fuller which had been sent to Story. He speaks also of Carlyle and Tennyson. Margaret Fuller's letter to Mrs. Story is a friendly one in which she writes chiefly of her love for Rome and her life there.
