Letter from Geoffrey Agnew to Van Akin Burd

Date 21 Jun 1958

A letter from Geoffrey Agnew to Van Akin Burd (State University of New York) in response to the follow up queries re Ruskin's connection to the Agnew's firm via Miss Joanna Agnew (part of the Scottish branch of Agnews residing at Lochnaw, Wigtounshire). He reveals that this Scottish branch of the family is not well connected with the Agnew art dealership, but promises to send on any evidence he finds of a business relationship between the latter and Ruskin.
