Zwei Briefentwürfe mit Korrekturen, darunter einer an den Schriftsteller John Ruskin (1819-1900), dem er u. a. von Arbeitsverpflichtungen berichtet. Im Text findet sich die Skizze eines Heißluftballons (ca. 55:35 mm). Die Entwicklung der Ballonfahrt wurde im 19. Jahrhundert v. a. in Großbritannien vorangetrieben und faszinierte Cruikshank, der sie häufiger thematisierte (u. a.: "Lofty Projects" (1825), "Sketches by Boz" (Dickens, 1836), "Air-um Scare-um Travelling" (1843) und "Table-Book" (1845)". - Leichte Randläsuren.
