Letter to James W. Davis, Public Library Halifax

Date 15 Oct 1887

Informing him that the Gallery does not lend pictures for the purpose of temporary exhibition elsewhere. The picture he mentioned, Cruikshank's 'The Triumph of Bacchus' [transferred to the Tate and now entitled 'The Worship of Bacchus'] has been permanently lent to the Corporation of Bradford under the National Gallery Loan Act of 1883 and is unable to be removed for the purpose he suggests.
