Content Description

He hoped that Clausen liked the Morrises. Mrs. Morris knew the Millais family in their earlier years. He complains of the Australian attitude against the purchase of old masters, which often appears in the press. However the public do like the new Van Dyck purchased by Rinder. Longstaff is doing a roaring trade in portraits in Sydney, Lambert has gone there too. Septimus Power has won a commission for a mural war memorial for the National Museum, Melbourne, his design is fine.
