Text: Private | I am afraid the melancholy circumstances at Manchester will operate unfavorably on the Exhibition [of 1842?] both as to the number of pictures sent and the visitors and sale. || I have only one for sale 'The Muleteer boys' which as it is partly a repetition of a subject I have for Suffolk Street [see ILN review, 1843] I ask fifty gns or pounds for though I cannot include the frame in this price which cost six gns I suppose there is little chance of sale this year but if any offer please to let me know. | I have sent the portrait of Mrs H. the only one I had at my disposal to fill up as you may want pictures of a larger size. | I have been utterly unable to finish my large picture of the Spanish Posada for the Exhibition which I much regret. Note: Scene in a Spanish Posada in Andalusia, was apparently exhibited at the Society of British Artists Exhibition in 1843.~180~AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT BRITISH ART PORTRAIT PAINTER MANCHESTER ART TREASURES EXHIBITION SOCIETY OF BRITISH ARTISTS~ ~0~OL59~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 22965~21/03/2020~False~George St Clair, FGS (Palestine Exploration Fund)~[George St Clair, FGS; Palestine Exploration Fund] Autograph Letter Signed George St. Clair to wm Stoate, Esq. satisfying a request for autographs from the Palestine Exploration Fund correpondence.~[Headed] Palestine Exploration Fund, 104 Sussex Road, Seven Sisters' Road, London, N., 2 January 1874.~Two pages, 8vo, bifolium, one leaf laid down on sl. larger piece of paper docketed Geo.
