Charles West Cope letter to Richard Redgrave, 1840 January 29

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 21
Call Number: MSS 22

Scope and Contents

Cope sends Redgrave "fifty pounds," "to prevent any loss of time in building." Cope asks "when is the varnishing day at the Gallery," and asks if Creswick [probably Thomas Creswick] has "been paid from the Liverpudlians." Cope asks after Redgrave's pictures and states that his own are "in that uncomfortable state where nothing seems to take." Cope has "procured" acid for a plate.
