He discusses recent developments in the Queen's trial and the evidence of Sir William Gell; he discusses the [Edinburgh] review of Farington's work [his 'Life' of Reynolds] and speculates on the idenity of the author, who is obviously hostile to the Academy; he asks for a list of the distinguished artists at the founding of the Incorporated Society, as the artists of Ireland wish to Charter a society.
