Content DescriptionHe has looked in vain for the illustration of Gilbert's sketch for the Alexandra memorial in The Times. The financial situation means he has no money for subscriptions. He thinks that Gilbert should be put on the civil list, David Murray could speak to the Royal Academy. There appears to be little appetite for the meal in honour of Alfred Gilbert at the Club. During the day the place is filled with "lawyers, doctors, various vague men of no occupation". Architects talk only about golf and cricket, Sargent at least talked about music. With this in mind it is always a pleasure to see Lindsay MacArthur.
