Carpenter writes that he has consulted Mr Panizzi and that Becker may have unmounted photographs of the Raphael drawings in the British Museum at 3/6d each. He tells Becker to keep the list of the sale of the King of Holland's pictures for as long as he needs. He also gives Miss Woodburn's address [Miss Woodburn is Mary, the sister of the art dealer Samuel Woodburn] and states that there is no published engraving of Hayter's picture of the christening of the Prince of Wales.
