Selected Letters Letter from William Ewart Gladstone to G.F. Watts, dated 11 May 1876, re-arranging a sitting with the artist.
 

73 Hailey Court
May 11. 76

Dear Mr Watts
Ann accidental question from my wife has just awaked me, a few hours too late, to the horrible breach of faith I have this day committed - possibly to your serious inconvenience.

My only excuse - if it be one - is the utter confusion attendant upon a change of residence

 

  in active progress.

I offer myself for either Monday or Tuesday next at the same hour (twelve) - and unless I hear to the contrary I will assume it is Monday.

If neither day suits I could say Friday or Saturday.

Yours sincerely
WE Gladstone
