Victorian Illustrators

I noticed a story today about Lewis Carroll and Sir John Tenniel--there is a letter between them that is going to be offered at auction. Interesting as I am currently reading a Life and Letters of Charles Keene of Punch, a contemporary. From what I have read so far, and from the story about the Carroll/Tenniel note, it appears that the epistolary style of those gentlemen was more breezy than we might have expected.
