Letter from H.F. Stockdale to W.G. Burrell, Librarian of Royal Technical College, Glasgow

Comments on the Dilettanti Society and the College's portrait collection, most of which were, he believes, donated by James Smith of Jordanhill, but some of which may have come via the Society. Mention of Arthur Kay, Joseph Parker Smith, Henry Raeburn, Peter Bennett and paintings of [ ] Henderson (president of the Dilettanti Society), James Smith, Benjamin Franklin and George Buchanan. Reference to the poor state of the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College administration in the 1890s. Sent from Helensburgh.
