Content Description

He has seen Owen and hoped to see Callcott about the election; he feels it better to wait until the next election before pushing for Robert Smirke; he vilifies Soane for attacking Robert Smirke in his lecture; he and Smirke will try to get the support of West, Dance will not help; Owen has remained silent on this attack, Thomson is infecting Owen's "wholesome blood"; he has advised Smirke to go to Phillips and Flaxman, who are on Council; they are to blame for the state of the Academy as their "opponents" are assiduous in their attendance, Farington, Lawrence, Smirke, Daniell, Westall and Dance are not.
