Piloty & Loehle state that in accordance with Becker's instructions of 14 April (see VIC/ADDA10/85/339a), their best artists will shortly begin making drawings on stone of the two Raphael paintings in question, and 20 'avant la lettre' lithographs of each will be sent to the Prince. They ask whether the Prince would like them to be sent as soon as each is ready, or whether both should be sent together.

They note that the Prince wishes to subscribe to King Ludwig's collection of Beauties, and this, together with the King's 5th album, will be sent in due course. They thank Becker for passing on their request for payment to Mr Glover, who has settled an earlier bill, although their latest delivery to him remains to be paid for.
