Content DescriptionHis personal impression is that their display in the exhibition is favourable. He thinks the committee have made a good job of a very difficult task. It is not representative of the National Art, far from it, but it holds its own among the other foreigner exhibits. He spoke briefly at the dinner. The exhibition planning is very behind, Armstead and Lorimer tell him this is due to lack of workmen.
