Content Description

The Revd. George Selwyn is about to sail for New Zealand, as the first Bishop; he has long been a friend and Coleridge would like a fine drawing of him; praises Richmond's portrait of [William] Farrer and others at Sir R. Inglis's house, if it were a success he would want to send it to Mr. Cousins for engraving.
