Autograph letter signed ("W.W. Ouless"), 2 pages, measuring approximately 4 1/4" x 7", 12 Bryanston Square, London, 16 June 1880. To Mrs. Johnson, reporting: "I went . . . to see your picture at Reeves' shop. What he proposes to do would improve it immensely, and would not in any way harm it. He mentioned to me what the cost was to be . . . and I think it very reasonable. In its present state it is unsightly but would look quite another picture when restored. . . ." Slight browning and remains of prior mounting on verso; else very good.

Walter William Ouless, R.A. (1848-1924); British portrait-painter. Those who sat for him included Charles Darwin, John Bright and Cardinal Newman. (Item ID: 19469)
