3. Nightingale v Whistler
Benjamin Ebenezer Nightingale (b. 1838), builder [more]. This document concerns JW's dispute with Nightingale over the construction cost of the White House, his studio house at Tite Street, which had far exceeded its original estimate. The size of the final bill pushed JW, already hard-pressed financially, towards crisis point. (see his correspondence with E. W. Godwin, #08736, #01748; G. & W. Webb to JW, #08735; and other documents from the case including affidavits, #12049, #12033; plaintiff's costs, #12031; and final judgment, #12028).
