Letter from Burton to Locke Eastlake

Date 25 Feb 1887

Burton is satisfied that the Gallery attendants can not be blamed for the poor state of exhibition cases, which have been damaged through age as much as the mis-management of window blinds. Goes onto state that any further decorating of rooms within the Gallery will not be needed, as the new rooms should not be made to look like the old rooms.
