Becker writes that the photographs of the Raphael drawings at the Royal Museum have arrived safely; the Prince Consort has asked him to thank Mr Grubb for enabling the photography to be done, and to send him photographs of all the Raphael drawings at Windsor in exchange, for the the Royal Museum, as well as the gift of a ring to Mr Grubb himself in token of HRH's gratitude. Becker goes on to ask whether an ink drawing mentioned in Passavant volume 3 and closely resembling the composition later carried out in Santa Maria della Pace in Rome is still in the Royal Museum. If so, he asks for a photograph of it although it is not by Raphael, and if not, where else he might look for it.
