Bingham reports that he has been to the Louvre and seen the drawings which he is to photograph for Prince Albert, which M. Reiset has put in a portfolio for him. He hopes to begin on Saturday, but the weather has been very bad for photography lately, and he is very busy at the exhibition which is now open. He will forward the prints to Becker. He is glad that Prince Albert liked the photograph of Meissonier's 'La Rixe' which he sent.
