correct a letter to the editor in the Athenaeum regarding WMR's edited Shelley ms..
Rossetti, William M. "Shelley's MS. at Aberdeen." Athenaeum (1907): 519. Web. 21 September 2011.
Rossetti takes issues with a letter published in the Athenaeum from Prof. H. J. C. Grierson claiming that Rossetti "inadvertently" adopted certain emendations to the manuscript. Rossetti clarifies that the changes were deliberate, based on a letter from Trelawny which he cites.
Rossetti then confesses to have made one mistake-substituting "only" for "alone" in the prose heading to the poem.
