Herr Thomas states that on the instructions of Herr von Stockmar he has posted to the Prince Consort the photographic reproduction he has made of a Raphael drawing [belonging to Herr Bethmann Hollweg] at Schloss Rheineck in Coblenz. The plate is true to the original, which has deteriorated so much with age that the drawing can scarcely be seen, but the reproduction is as good as possible, and is about half life size.

Becker added a postscript noting his reply that the plate arrived safely, and that he told Thomas to send the bill to Ruland.
