Title

Letter from Lockett Agnew to [Blakeslee], with transcript

Date 13 Feb 1903
Description

A letter from Lockett Agnew in which he points out to [Blakeslee] if the latter had claimed that the "Head of the Virgin" was by Botticelli (rather than Lockett's opinion that it was from the studio of Botticelli) then he deserves the abuse received from the purchasers. He also points out details related to their business relationship and suggests talking it over when they next meet. He also states that he will not sell him anything again which requires explanation.

A transcript of this letter can be found next to the loose letter pages within the Lockett Agnew file.
