Cundall reports that Lord Methuen has given him permission to photograph his [Raphael] Madonna; he asks whether Becker knows of a 'Dancing Girl' by Raphael owned by Mr Hope of Piccadilly and of another Raphael picture belonging to Mr Stewart of Hill Street. A note by Becker on the letter records his reply asking Cundall to photograph the former and report back to him on the latter; also to photograph Lord Leicester's three pictures and Lord Spencer's picture at Althorp [all presumably by Raphael].
