Thurston Thompson informs Dr. Becker that he has photographed all the Raphael drawings in the Louvre's collection, not for the French government but by permission obtained for him by the Marlborough House authorities [the Department of Art & Science]. He will shortly return to London from Paris and hopes to be able to show Dr Becker a set of 'impressions' (photographic prints) soon.
