 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 25
Call Number: MSS 53

Scope and Contents

"January 15, 1914. Dear Mr Hewitt, I am so much indebted to you for your kindness in sending me this valuable list. I want to see Lewis better represented here and shall try to array a little exhibition rather with a view to the Trustees being able to see his work. Mr Horton of Birmingham [i.e., Joseph Horton, d. 1927] has a good big [?] scale one "In the Harem" but he has rather an exaggerated idea of its market price. Sir Cuthbert Quilter had a good one but I do not know at present what became of it. With renewed thanks, I am yours very truly, Charles Aitken."
