The collection comprises three letters by Edward Lear. One, in Italian, was sent to an acquaintance in Brindisi, asking him to provide the best accommodations in his albergo to friends on their way to Corfu (1868 Feb. 28, Cannes). The artist thanks a gentleman for purchasing his picture "Kasr es Saad" from the Royal Academy exhibit, and gives him the name and address of his banker for the payment, and that of the shipping company. He mentions a companion piece sent to the Academy representing another view of the Nile, which might interest his patron (1870 May 16, Cannes). In a short note, he asks Mrs. Wickham at Portland Place to introduce to "the world of Hampshire" his new book about the "scenery of Corsica," to be published soon [1870]

He was also seeking a means to begin publishing pictures of birds. He writes of his desire to join an exedition to the Pacific wilderness, his aspirations of showing his work in Europe, his family's financial difficulty, and much about his daily activities.
