Content DescriptionHe has spoken with an important member of the R.A. who says that the major stumbling block [in Alfred Gilbert's reinstatement] is the firm belief that he sold reproductions of the figures from the Duke of Clarence's tomb in galleries on Bond Street.

The Maharaja has now left for India, but received the suggestion of a commission for Alfred Gilbert kindly, although Spielmann doubts Gilbert would respond to an Indian subject.
