Record NG6/6/27

Archive reference number NG6/6/27
Title

Letter to A.B. Milford

Date 13 Oct 1879
Description

Stating that it would be very convenient if the painting and papering of the room that will be holding an exhibition of watercolour drawings could be 'commenced at once, during the vacation.' This early start would be useful because applications are frequently being made to see the drawings, and there is currently no wall space on which the pictures can be properly displayed. The room is not very large so will not need a large level of expenditure to be papered.
