Carpenter writes that admission to the British Museum's Print Room is being arranged for Charles Ruland. He states that three Raphael drawings, the Nativity, the Presentation in the Temple and a study for the Infant Christ in 'La Belle Jardinière', once owned by Mr Böhm of Vienna, were presented to the Oxford University Galleries by the late Mr Chambers Hall. He adds that the other drawing mentioned by Becker is probably still in the possession of Mrs Ford.
