Carpenter thanks the Prince Consort for presenting the British Museum with 32 photographs that he has had taken of the Raphael drawings in its collections, and tells Ruland that he has just bought a slight but 'certainly a true' sketch by Raphael for La Madonna della Casa d'Alba which he wishes to show him, and remarks that it differs from the related sketches belonging to the Archduke Albrecht and at Lille.
