I have been on the look out for a good specimen of Alma-Tadema that I could recommend to you, but all the fine ones are snapped up immediately. Mr Alma-Tadema has on one or two occasions executed a commission for me, and I must say he never did anything better. Would you like me to approach him on the subject of painting a picture for you? If I did & he would undertake to do one somewhat similar to that he did for my friend Sir Frederick Wigan, the cost would be 1500 guineas, and you could not have anything finer. Will you think over this suggestion & let me know your views. Has the gentleman who called on me with you - Mr. Morse - yet returned to the States? If he is passing through London, I should be pleased to see him.

Yours truly

J. W. Beck

H. C. Frick Esq.
