Content Description

Paid a passing visit to John Linnell at Red Hill after spending two days at Hempstead, leaving with the Bishop of St. Albans, Sir Evelyn Wood, Sir M. Ridley and their families; Linnell was well, showed his last landscape, but Richmond thinks he no longer paints; he did not have time to see the Palmers; the Holbein is better than he hoped or expected, and the Duke will lend other things [to the Academy exhibition]; the Duke says he has always associated Richmond with the head of Newman; the castle is being restored and he talks of its history and his room.
