121.  THE LADY OF SHALOTT.
To F.M. Brown, 14 August 1873 (MS: South African National Gallery):
Finborough Road
    A brother of Goodwin's, a carpenter who is clever at carving and wants to get frames to do, ... has made several for his brother and one or two for me, all of oak and with no plaster at all.... My Lady of Shallot had the only entirely carved frame in the Academy, I feel proud to say; ... it was a noble work.... My frames, after they were gilded, only cost me the same as if I had had them done in the old way.
