Letter from Sir Charles Eastlake to Ralph N Wornum
|Date||2 Nov 1854|
Relating to length of the note on Rembrandt's death in the National Gallery catalogue. Eastlake states, "It is a maxim with historians to avoid arguments pro and con and give the result only of a careful examination". He advised waiting until Villot has published the burial certificate. "We must do nothing that can have the future effect of disturbing our friendly relations with authorities abroad."
