Edward William Cooke letter to Richard Redgrave, 1868 September 24

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 20
Call Number: MSS 22

Scope and Contents

Cooke has "longed" for Redgrave to visit his "new home" and apologizes for not sending a formal invitation due to the hot weather and then the Saturnalia, which "absorbed all [his] servants." Cooke states that it is now peaceful and the rain is "making everything look marvelously lovely - the autumnal tints have command & the effects are charming." Cooke describes the various trains Redgrave could take. Cooke writes " I cannot express my vexation that I am debarred from supplying the S.K. Mus: [South Kensington Museum] with the descriptions of the V. glass[?]"
