Colnaghi writes that he sold the Raphael drawing 'Two male figures' to Edward Cheney of Shrifnal and not to Dr. Wellesley as stated in his earlier letter (see VIC/ADDA10/85/34). He has written to Cheney about it, and reports that Dr. Wellesley has said that any unengraved Raphael drawings he has are at the Prince Consort's disposal [for photography]. He encloses a letter (not present) from Mr Boulton about his Raphael drawings but has not yet heard from Mr Vaughan. He will try to find the English prints wanted for HRH's collection.

A note at the top of the letter records that Becker replied on 16 November.
