Charles West Cope letter to Richard Redgrave, 1870 July 30

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

Scope and Contents

Cope thanks Redgrave for his attention to the matter regarding the sales clerk at the Royal Academy Exhibition [see previous letter]. Cope states that he thinks the attendant is not "qualified" for the position due to his poor writing skills in a note he had written to Cope. Cope is unwell. He is "anxious to hear what conclusions the Council have come to on [Redgrave's] motion" and wishes Redgrave to write to tell him the result. He also wishes to know the results of the "Exhibition receipts and any other matters." Cope lists friends who have recently visited him.
