Content DescriptionThe [School] is difficult to describe, but a friend, Mr. Aris, is preparing a set of photographs. The venture would benefit from the widest publicity. His father's resources at now at an end, although they currently have no debts. "With his characteristic optimism" they have nearly completed a huge figure of Victory and an over life-size statue of Queen Alexandra. His father is awaiting the second installment of a payment of £366 and urgently needs £100. They dearly wish that Spielmann would visit and see the possibilities of the scheme.
