NPG 1827 (3a)

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.
