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 St which far exceeded the 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. See also affidavits, #12033 and #12049.
