Joseph Cundall writes to Dr. Ernst Becker reporting that he will do his best [to complete current photographs] and if he fails it will be due to the weather. He also states that he has arranged to take a photograph of Lord [?Ward's] 'Christ on the Cross' and that he can find photographs of Buckingham Palace, St James's Palace and Dover. He is also planning to "take Fenton's Hotel from an opposite window on the first fine day". He also states that he is sorry to hear that Dr. Becker will soon be leaving Prince Albert's service and that Lord Leicester's and Mr Hope's pictures are both done.
