The Royal Hospital.
8th October 1898.

Dear Mr. Watts,
I will be with you at 11 am. On Thursday the 13th instant, and, in case you may require another sitting, I will keep the 14th and 15th disengaged.

Would you very kindly send me a line to say whether Lady Roberts and my daughters may see the picture before you leave London. They



are longing to do so, and so is yours very sincerely
