Typed copy of a letter from G.F. Watts to Sir Charles Wentworth Dilke, 2nd Bt., dated 9 March 1873, confirming his price for the portrait.
March 9. 1873.
Little Holland House.
Dear Sir Charles,
I am glad the picture looks well where you have placed it.
My price for such heads is 300 gui[nea]s if you like to keep the frame I will order another for myself and you can include its price in your cheque.
I shall be very glad to go on with Lady Dilke's picture when she is able to sit.
Yours very truly,
I hardly know from your letter whether Mr Mill is willing to sit or not.
I am very sorry to hear that Lady Dilke is so unwell and desire to be kindly remembered to her.
