|Date||24 Aug 1902|
|Extent & Medium||2 pieces, 1 envelope|
|Content Description||He is pleased to have sold Hamlet. He has been fully occupied painting the King's coronation vestments for Abbey, a challenge as the robes glitter "like a pantomime fairy". Next he has to paint in a "marvellous" Persian carpet, Abbey has yet to touch the work. The Abbey's seem pleased with him.|
Spielmann has asked for a coloured drawing of Henry VIII for which he is to receive £20. Byam Shaw and Mrs. Brickdale are also contributing to this project.
He is sorry about the recent trust fund bother and will send money soon. The Abbey's have left him alone in the house with the caretaker.
