||Letter from William Buckland to Thomas Phillips, dated 19 May 1831, regarding the proposed sitting.|
Oxford Thursday May 19 1831
My Dear Sir
I take for granted that I must bring my gown, & you will perhaps allow me for the first few minutes to bring & introduce to yourself & Mrs Phillips my wife who regrets equally with myself our absence from Oxford at the time when we had hoped to have been there to receive you - a time which we trust will soon again recur. We shall be staying with Chantrey during our short visit to London.
Believe me Yours Always Very Truly
