Letter from Sir David Wilkie to Abraham Raimbach, dated 22 December (18??), arranging to meet him for lunch.


Sunday evening

My dear Sir
As I have made an engagement with a sitter for Wednesday morning it will not be in my power to meet you to go to the school in Poland Street, but will have great pleasure in meeting you afterwards at dinner at 3 o' clock -

I wish to get you to come out some evening to let me make a chalk drawing of your hands for the little Portrait.

My mother continues to go on well & with many thanks for your kind enquiries too. (illegible)

D. Wilkie
