Tinker writes that he is glad to hear the glass plates he sent arrived safely; he states his charge of £60.15 for the work. He reports that he has been to to the Teyler Museum to see the other 6 drawings described by Passavant and two others also by Raphael; these have always been considered as copies and the directors seem to doubt their authenticity, but Tinker thinks most are original, and has been given permission to photograph them, for which he will charge £20. He adds a postscript saying that there is a beautiful collection of drawings by other great masters at the Museum.
