|Letter from William Collins to the brother of Sir Charles Eastlake, dated 28 January 1823, speaking of the progress that Eastlake is making as an artist.|
Wm Collins R.A.
With no inconsiderable degree of pleasure I write to you in order to offer my sincere congratulations upon the great stride your Brother has made in his profession. I am delighted with this not only on account of the interest I must feel in him as your relative but because, as you know, I had predicted a favourable result from the marks of careful study I had observed in his former and early works.
