 Item — Box: 2, Folder: 70
Call Number: MSS 22

Scope and Contents

"My Dear Redgrave, I submitted your protest on the matter of mounts to the committee at this last meeting. They regret that the means they adopted to obtain, as it appeared to them, the best judgement on such matters should have permitted[?] so unsatisfactorily to any member of the Academy - But as the printed expectations have by this time been forwarded to all parts of the Kingdom, the council conceive that no change could be made for the forthcoming exhibition and should the effect prove so injurious to all as you seem to consider, an alteration can be made in the regulations another year. Yours very truly, John P. Knight."
