Extent & Medium1 piece
Content DescriptionFirstly, a letter to Gilbert, from Uplands, Folkestone, a reconciliation is utterly dependent upon getting the figures [for the tomb of the Duke of Clarence] cast in plaster immediately. He must then write to Frederick Ponsonby asking to site them, before proceeding to the metal stage. This would scotch court gossip. Now is the moment Gilbert must help himself.

Alfred Gilbert, to unknown [shorthand noatation], he has just returned from Rome and found the figures [for the Duke of Clarence tomb] packed away. They need some further work.
