 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 18
Call Number: MSS 22

Scope and Contents

In a letter that is frequently illegible, Cockerell writes of a mission in Paris [presumably related to the Paris Exhibition] in which he was instrumental in getting "our great national work" "sanction[ed]" by the "French […]" and the "Imperial authority." He writes that he "shall expect [the thanks of the commissioners] & the fullest acknowledgement of [his] services on that mission." Earlier in the letter, Cockerell discusses the "Gross treatment of [his] model, packed by the best men in London a model so interesting to the architecture […] of Greek architecture, original, by […] privation to me and a competition in Grecian research." He also mentions a letter received from a Mr Duncombe.
