27th May 1915
His Worship the Mayor,
In connection with the acquirement by the City of this
collection might I suggest to you the advisability of a memorial
tablet being placed in the Art Gallery to commemorate the gift by
Mr. Partridge and in the circumstances under which it was
I should also point out to you that the room which contains the
collection is not in a happy condition, as no expenditure was made
while the collection was merely on loan. The lighting too is
defective. Now that the collection belongs to the city I think it
desirable to make the room look as well as it can.
Your obedient servant,
