The major collection of Branwell Brontë's drawings, letters, and poems completes the Brontë material at Leeds.
His polished translations of Horace's Odes, were once in the possession of the Georgian poet and dramatist John Drinkwater (1882-1937).
A brief extract suggests their fluency, and Branwell's debt as a translator to 18th century precedents:
The Merchant, when 'at home at ease'
May shudder at tempestuous seas,
And, scarce escaped from oceans war,
May praise the pleasures of the shore,
Yet shuddering too at poverty,
Again he seeks that very sea.
