Brief notes written by Becker giving the gist of his reply to Gruner's letter: if possible, the drawings would be returned via that day's courier, but if the weather did not permit the [re-] photographing of the broken [glass plate negatives of the]sections of the salver (Schüssel), they would be sent with the next courier. He described the state of the glass plate negative of the drawing of child angels. The plate and prints would be sent soon.

Becker confirmed that Gruner could send his letter regarding Count Riesch's drawing (see VIC/ADDA10/85/430) to the Count. He had already thanked for the tracing of it in the Prince's name.
