Content Description

He read Spielmann's article with great interest and approved, in the main. His concluding sentence makes it impossible for a member of the Academy to back him and is what has "fetched" Sir Frederic. He it cruel that elderly men of their profession are hounded and chivied by the press and public. He agrees with Spielmann that the tops of the pictures should be in alignment on the line. He is dissapointed that Spielmann hides behind the monkier of "an Outsider", his argument is not strengthened by this.
