Archive reference number



Correspondence with Hugh Leggatt of Leggatt Brothers art dealers. Leggatt donates £1000 towards the Titian campaign, and is then uncertain that the campaign will be a success so requests that his money be returned. Once government help towards the campaign is confirmed, Leggatt then decides that he will make a donation as long as the Gallery guarantees that entry to the Gallery will be free of charge at least one day a week in the event of entry charges having to be introduced. Leggatt wishes to make this donation through the National Art Collections Fund. The Gallery is unable to make such a promise and so returns Leggatt's donation.
