Lord Carlisle writes that he has two small pictures, of Abraham and Isaac and of the Crucifixion, but that he had been led to believe they were by Perugino [i.e. not Raphael]. Nevertheless he is willing for them to be photographed for the Prince Consort, or to have them sent to the Prince to see beforehand if he wishes.
