Highlights from Mildred Bliss’s Autograph Letter Collection

Among the many autograph letters collected by Mildred Bliss over the years and currently found in the Rare Books Collection are letters from the poet William Cowper and the art critic John Ruskin. Both show the writers at their most characteristic: Cowper exults in the recovery of King George III, and Ruskin sums up his great love of the Middle Ages. Though previously published, the letters were often abbreviated, and we are glad to make the full text, along with high-quality images of the original documents, available online.
