Title

Copy and transcripts of a letter from Thomas Agnew to Vittore Zanetti

Date 4 Sep 1855
Description

A photocopy of a letter (and four copies of the transcript) from Thomas Agnew to Vittore Zanetti (4 Sep 1855) expressing his delight that the latter desires a reconciliation between the two of them. Agnew mentions the incident which seems to have caused their disagreement, in which he apparently lost a good deal of money, and he regrets not meeting Zanetti when he was in Milan some years previously. He concludes by writing about his achievements, his wife's health, and his eldest sons (now Partners in the firm).
