 Item — Box: 2, Folder: 124
Call Number: MSS 22

Scope and Contents

"Dear Mr. Redgrave, Will you remember your kind promise to ask you father if he would be good enough to give some commendation to Mr. Lobley's testimonials and […] laid before the council of the R.A. when they come to elect[?] their Curator or whatever the assistant master of the school is called. I believe Mr. Lobley will be found to be a very excellent teacher as I know something of some of his pupils' work & therefore I feel that among the crowd of applicants, no apology is needed in asking Mr. Redgrave kindly to consider his claims. I would have written to your father [...]: but he will hardly know me: perhaps therefore you would kindly forward this to him [...]. Yours sincerely, A. Waterhouse."
