Content Description

On the difficulties of trying to secure permission to see Millais's works, even with Egg as an intermediary; has now seen the pictures and raves about them, calling Millais a "genius", mentions "Peace Concluded", "Autumn Leaves" and "a child lying asleep"; considers the merits of the "Scapegoat" by Holman Hunt and is glad it is not adjacent to his own works; discusses his own affairs, a work bought for 800gn. by the Glasgow Art Union; mentions the work of Horsley, Egg and Elmore.
