The Royal Lion - Lyme Regis.
It is very nice & kind of you to take all this trouble about my Bailie! [sic] but I fear I must have made some mistake - I will write to Paris & find if I have got hold of the wrong name - Meanwhile I will send you word in a day or two when you can see the little panel in question - Do you really know any one who has made my frames? - Poor Grau has not left his successor the plans has he? and Richards says that his man could only make my frame if he had one to copy by him - I want 3. of exactly the same pattern and size, as the one I have in The New Gallery. Have you seen that head yet?
