I consider that Mr. Charles A. Howell has every qualification as a man of business and is replete with the practical knowledge of Art - and I would not ask for any better authority in such matters -

2. Charles A. Howell
Charles Augustus ('Owl') Howell (1840? - d.1890), entrepreneur [more]. At one time Howell was Rossetti's secretary. In fact JW had reservations about Howell's knowledge of Art and came to mistrust his honesty (see JW to F. R. Leyland, [23 August 1871?], #11867).
