Lieber Mac[3] -

I am going to trouble you in quite a new way! -

A great and devoted friend is most anxious that George McCullough[4] should obtain the Curatorship at the Royal Academy - It appears that this is the moment for candidates being voted for - and the McCullough is in every way [p. 2] efficient and proper for the post -

If you were to say a word to some of the right people, he might possibly get it - indeed doubtless anyone would be very glad to know who to vote for! -

When are you going to look in? -

Always -
