In reply to a letter from Becker (not present), Colnaghi's report that they have been unable to photograph Mr Vaughan's drawing of the Foligno picture because of his absence abroad, but will do so as soon as he returns. The recent gloomy weather has prevented the printing of the negatives of Mr Russell's drawings. The Duke of Buccleuch's cartoon will be photographed before the end of the year. The addresses of Henry Farrer and G.E.H. Vernon are added at the end of the letter.
