Call Number: MSS 53

Scope and Contents

"Sep 1 '74. My dear Mr Lewis, Your generous soul will rejoice that poor Foley will have the last honour due to him; for our application has succeeded and he is to be buried in St. Pauls on Friday next at 12 o'clock. He will lie close to Turner, Reynolds, and James Barry, with only one grave between him and this noble company. The sterling artists are fast passing away, and what the next generation will be like I tremble to contemplate. - With kindest wishes for your health - Ever truly yours, T. Woolner." See: Thomas Woolner, R.A., sculptor and poet, pages 297-298.
