Record NG6/6/354

Archive reference number NG6/6/354

Letter to Nuford Shaw Roscoe and Co.

Date 27 Feb 1880

It would be difficult for the Gallery to estimate the commercial value of the late Miss Sarah Solly's pictures in the manner required by the Inland Revenue. The company's letter will therefore be forwarded to the Treasury solicitor, who will be able to advise all parties on how best to proceed. [Copy of a pass granting admission to Miss M. Griffith as a copyist at the Gallery included on same page, dated 26 Feb. Admission for copying in the watercolour room].
