Bingham states that he has finished photographing the drawings at the Louvre and those sent to him by Baron de Triqueti. He has had a meeting with Mr Kuhlmann of Lille; he has permission to reproduce the drawings there, and will be going there next week. Frédéric Reiset at the Louvre, however, objects to photographs of their drawings being sold in London; copies are to be made only for Prince Albert, so Bingham will destroy the negatives afterwards. He notes that the drawing [?of St] Paul is in the collection.
