Record NG6/6/139

Archive reference number NG6/6/139

Letter to Isaac Carruthers

Date 29 Nov 1879

As the work delivered for examination by Carruthers [see NG6/6/128] is a drawing rather than a painting the Gallery will be unable to accept it, as drawings are never purchased by the Gallery. Could Carruthers come to collect the drawing as soon as is convenient.
