Letter to Mr R. Dolman

Date 6 Aug 1880

Saying he must have misunderstood the instructions, and that the idea of a black and gold frame had been abandoned for the Boucher picture and that it was suggested that they be gilded all over. [Eastlake] has been expecting them daily as the frame is wanted at once, and could they be sent tomorrow, Saturday.
