Abstract:

The collection comprises nine letters. Five of them were sent to David Ramsay Hay from 1845 July 27 to 1848 July 20 (23 pages). The artist was interested in Hay's theory that organic forms are "made up of combinations of the ellipse," which is very close to Harding's opinion that "ovoid curves are the true forms." They exchange information on the subject. A four page letter, probably from 1848 July 19, includes two pages of comments on Hay's decoration of the Society of Arts great room, with suggestions of improvements that would "add brilliancy to the effects of the whole."

The other four letters include one without heading and salutation, informing Harding's correspondent about changes at the Society of Arts, which under the "New Regime...will become a most valuable establishment, new and very influential names being added daily." The date 25th Febr. 1829 (or 27?) is written in a different hand on the blank page. In a short letter the artist accepts an invitation (1846 Jan. 5). He writes to Dalziel that the proof will soon be ready. He only desires to "remove certain dark parts and render the lines more even and delicate (1856 June 21). An undated note asks someone to meet him at the Royal Academy.
