Content Description

He has been at work on Beavor Lodge and has nearly finished the third window for H[oly] T[rinity] church, five hundred heads in a design that he has not attempted before. He is happy Ernest has a settle income as there is no work at home, save for architects such as Aston Webb.

Provides some advice on materials and painting techniques. Family news, Arthur is a "very important diplomat". He sells nothing, but then he is an old man and is happy that some of his work will live, whereas the Impressionists will "leave corpses".
