Letter from W.H. Gregory to Burton

Date 27 Apr 1890

Asks if the next Trustees meeting can be postponed as he is out of the country. Mentions the proposal from Tate, which has been 'fraught with evil' because the offer could not be refused and features works that do not represent the best living painters. Discusses various issues around Tate's offer, including the space needed for exhibiting the proposed new acquisitions.
