'Dear Commander Williams,/I hear you have bought my ''Peninsula in/Arcady''. I do hope it will long give you/pleasure. I confess I liked it so much myself/that I kept it in my studio for a long time and/had the strength of mind to reject quite a lot/of ''approaches''! It is a good display at the/R.W.S. this autumn. Now, you are one of my/patrons. Many thanks./Sincerely yours,/W. Russell Flint.' (on a typed label attached to the backboard)
