Description

Letter from J.M.W. Turner to the engraver W.B. Cooke, regarding a Mr Calcott.

Inscription

Thursday [indec]
9 [indec]

for WB

Mr Calcott objects to having his name in the Prospectus for he cannot do one for the first 20. (and wishes to see the work processing with of a chance of its continuing). All I could obtain towards the work [indec] stands thus. That if I do not hear from him in the course of a few days he declines it all together [sic].
JMWT

PS had you not better see Mr Calcott yourself.
