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

Scope and Contents

Cope writes to Redgrave about an issue with his painting "The Gentle Craft," at the Royal Academy Exhibition that year. He is upset that the gallery sales clerk has not posted the sale price with the painting even thought Cope had sent a paper with the price. Cope worries that other paintings will be similarly treated. He states that the attendant "deserves serious punishment."
