The Royal Lion - Lyme Regis - Dorset

All right - Only don't let the man be more than a couple of days regilding the little frame -

Have it simple yellow gold - not red - which is, if I remember rightly the present colour -

Also when finished he must varnish the frame - it makes the gold much softer - you know - like all mine are done - I am glad you like the little sea piece[3] - Let me know directly it is done.
