Content Description

Draft letter in which Middleton Todd tells Brooke that he will write and thank the President for his recommendation that he paint the portrait of the Duke of Edinburgh for the Welsh Guards, if they decide to award him the commission. He hopes that he is not doing the President a disservice by supporting the proposal that he remain in office for a further three or more years, in view of the immense amount of work and responsibility entailed.
