Content Description

He is grateful for a life-size chalk drawing; they would like it for the exhibition [at the Royal Academy] and will have it engraved afterwards; Millais has got Rossetti to write saying that he wants to have his portrait of John in the exhibition, then sent to Langham, but he has refused; he is glad Richmond likes the [Academy] notes, which are in the hands of all the artists at Edinburgh.
