Content Description

He is sorry that illness prevents Farington from coming to the Academy; he thinks Lane does not stand a chance [in the election], there is great interest in J. Wyatt; he thinks Baily should come in as the Academy should support the "strongest talents" as it has many enemies; he hopes to see Farington with Mr. Smirke afterwards.
