Letter expressing reassurance at the reaction of Disraeli to the possible sale of the Exhibition of 1862 building and site, plus the favourable report in 'The Herald' newspaper. Mentions the possibility of his retirement from the Board of Trade which would give him more time for the Commission's business.
