Russell states that he wrote to Grillet about the Prince's commission but received no answer; the reason is clear from the letter he encloses from Augustus Craven. Craven lives in Naples and is a very good amateur photographer whose judgment about the qualifications of anyone he recommends may be trusted. The beginning of the letter is missing; addressee presumed from signature 'yours ever affectionately'.
