(10) On behalf of the Trustees of the British Museum, Carpenter offers photographs of three of the original drawings by Raphael in the museum's collection, for Prince Albert. (10a) A note by Dr Becker records his answer on behalf of General Grey, thanking Carpenter for the offer but stating that HRH wishes to know whether the Trustees have considered having the copies printed by Pretsch's photogalvanographic process, which ensures a permanent image.
