MC:P162/C/1 17 Sep 1888
Autograph signed letter (1 sheet) from the artist William Holman Hunt (address Draycott Lodge, Fulham, S.W.) to ‘Dr. Roberts’, who must be John Varley Roberts, organist of Magdalen 1882–1918. The letter was written in connection with Hunt’s painting of Magdalen Tower on May morning. In it, Hunt thanks Roberts for sending him a plan of the tower, with the arrangement of the choir (which he may have to alter for artistic reasons), and hopes to visit Magdalen shortly.
