Russell writes that Dr. Becker told him his successor would let Russell see 'the arrangement made by The Prince of Vestiges of Raphael'; he does not know Becker's successor but wonders if he could see the collection on Saturday, when his office will be closed, unexpectedly, and he will be free. He adds that, as he told Becker, he would be willing to send the [Raphael] drawings from his collection that have been photographed to Buckingham Palace for the Prince to see.
