Content Description

Mr. Wyatt has been elected President of the Royal Academy. After casting his vote for Wyatt he left the room, as he did not want to be party to the election of Mr. Soane as Professor of Architecture. The country will not profit from his "architectural heresies". He vigorously expounds on his protestant heritage before discussing is position of Portrait Painter to His Majesty and suggesting the gift of his portraits of the Prince and Princess of Orange.
