NPG 1126 (1a/1b/1c)

Letter from Gladstone to G.F. Watts, dated 20 June 1859, cancelling a sitting because of his commitments.


Dear Mr Watts,
Unhappily a cabinet at half past three will prevent my coming to you this afternoon at 4 1/2.
I cannot confidently reckon on any day &




hour earlier than Thursday at 4.30 - I shall assume that this suits you unless I hear to the contrary. Unhappily however I can feel certain of nothing in the present rush of calls upon me, which includes those of a




(illegible) contest at Oxford.

Believe me
Most truly yours
W. Gladstone

II C. H. Terrace
June 20 1859
I hope to see you on Thursday morning
