Letter concerning the impossibility of the Patent Museum Committee finding in favour of the South Kensington Scheme. Because of this the preferred option would be to find in favour of having the models at Fife House which would create a 5 year delay while the Thames Embankment is completed, thereby allowing time for views to change in favour of South Kensington.
