Record NG6/6/926

Archive reference number NG6/6/926
Title

Letter to Secretary of H. M Treasury

Date 13 Nov 1880
Description

Stating that the Treasury’s recommendations that the gallery be kept open all

year and that the public be allowed entrance on Student’s days for a fee will

not be possible until the new attendants promised by the Treasury have been

appointed. The roles and cost of these additional attendees are explained. The

probability that the National Gallery may exceed its annual estimate for 1880-

81, and the sooner that entrance fees are charged on Student’s days, the sooner

this can be rectified.
