Archive reference number NG68/19/16

Letter from [signature unclear] to Locke Eastlake

Date 16 Jun 1897

Complaint about the plan for peers to enter the National Gallery through the back entrance without there being any special arrangements made for such a situation. The construction of a urinal nearby is likely to contaminate the area through which members of the House of Lords will have to pass in order to gain access to the Gallery.
