Refute Hayden's Casanova translation.
Rossetti, William M. "Haydon's Correspondence." Academy (April 8, 1876): 205. Web. 21 Sept. 2011.
Rossetti refutes a letter from Hayden regarding Rossetti's criticism of his Casanova translation. He painstakingly points out the passages and translations he finds problematic, summarizing that one particular bit of Hayden's translation was "absolute gibberish."
Rossetti suggests that perhaps the transcriber or the printer of the text Hayden referred to had made errors that skewed Haydon's translation.
But, he says, Haydon agrees with Rossetti regarding the authority of Tom Taylor's volumes, a reference Rossetti claims in his review of Haydon.
