Letter from Harriet Mill to Sir G. Scharf, dated
15 February 1887, giving additional information about the portrait.
for Westminster - should be used in any way the Trustees may approve. I am, myself, the last of the name; and being in my 75th year, and much of an invalid, it is a great comfort to me to know that this likeness of John Stuart Mill is now in safe hands.
He had always refused, until the year of his election to have any likeness whatever taken of him.
Harriet J. Mill
George Scharf Esq.
