Street, George Edmund, 1824-1881
Found in 6 Collections and/or Records:
Street would like Redgrave to read an enclosed paper which Street will hand to the Council during a meeting. Street is concerned about the Council "acquiescing" to a certain individual rather than "hurt[ing] his feelings." [The issue at hand is not made clear by Street. The name of the individual is given, but cannot be deciphered by the cataloger.] Street hopes that Redgrave will "second" his motion.
Street asks if Redgrave will be attending the Royal Academy audit on "Monday 8. 9th." Street invites Redgrave to dinner after the audit.
Street thanks Redgrave for his donation to the endowment toward the restoration of Henbury[?] Saint Mary Church. Street believes the church will be ready for use in the spring of 1879. [Street worked on the restoration of two churches named St. Mary in the late 1870s, St. Mary in Henbury and St. Mary at Bolton Abbey.]
Street writes to turn down a dinner invitation from Redgrave as he will be in Yorkshire at the time. Street has been at the anniversary celebration of the consecration of a church. He writes that the rector preached and "accommodated himself to his circumstances most amicably."
The archive comprises approximately 400 autograph letters, from upwards of 120 correspondents, addressed to Richard Redgrave (1804-1888).
