Archive reference number NG68/26/5

Letter from John Murray Scott to Poynter

Date 30 Jan 1904

Asking the Treasury for funding towards the acquisition of the Van Dyck and Titian will only succeed if all of the Trustees are in support of such a move. Scott's own view on the Van Dyck is that it would not be wise to spend more than £18,000 on the picture. He reserves his opinion on the Titian until he has had an opportunity to see it again.
