Becker expresses the hope that Waagen is back from his travels. In answer to the questions in his letter of 12 August (see VIC/ADDA10/85/334), the Prince does not want an un-retouched print of the fourth Raphael picture. Of the Duke of Terranuova's picture he would like an un-retouched print only, and if possible the negative itself. The Prince is very happy to give the photograph of the Panshanger Madonna to Waagen.
