Ruland explains that some time ago the Prince Consort bought some engravings which included a facsimile of a drawing by Raphael, made by M. de Saint Morys. But it is not mentioned by Passavant in his catalogue of the Cabinet Saint Morys, so Ruland cannot establish whether it is really a study for a painting by Raphael. He includes a tracing of it (not present), and asks whether it appears in Reiset's copy of 'Choix de dessins de la Collection de M. de Saint Morys', in which case he would like to know where the drawing itself is.
