Content Description

He was too tired to call previously; he is pleased with the [Academy] exhibition; Phillips has risen to the challenge that he set himself; the picture of Sir William Scott is not as good as that of his brothers; Turner's frost is pure in colour; Thompson's are as Farington described; he did not recognise the picture of Sir John [Stanbyn?] even though he stood next to him; Jackson has a fine half length; Dewint a fine landscape; he prefers the position of his Sir Thomas Graham to that occupied by a half length by Dawe; he praises Farington's works and congratulates him on his election to another society.
