Archive reference number NG6/6/113

Letter to the Hon. Mr Justice Mackay

Date 19 Nov 1879

There are no foundations for the statements that Mackay refers to, as Sir Charles Eastlake did not visit Ancona until 1858, when he found no Titians for sale. Furthermore, the Director has no recollection of the matter referred to having been mentioned to him as suggested.
