Autograph letter signed ‘John Millais’. Dated 17 April 1891, on printed notepaper from “2. Palace Gate. Kensington”. Millais writes to John Calcott Horsley, Treasurer of the Royal Academy, telling him he’ll be attending the AGM, and asking him “to find a place, good as per sun, for two landscapes by Cadogan” and a portrait by Vinter “which you can put up somewhere”. He also apologises that he probably won’t be able to make a forthcoming Council meeting because he has a clashing one “at the orphanage”
