Abstract:

The collection comprises eight letters, four of which were sent to his friend Bicknell. Goodall informs him that "the sketches are dry enough to be laid down upon canvas" (1868 Jan. 20). While visiting his family in Clifton, the artist writes Bicknell that he loved his "letter so full of pleasant art-gossip." He did not see the Leeds exhibition, but thinks he is "pretty fairly represented," and a woodcut of "The Declaration" was published in the Illustrations News. He has finished for his friend the sketch "Three Copt children," which will "lessen my pecuniary debt to you." John Gilbert came to visit: "an artist, a man for whom I have the highest respect" (1868 Sept. 1). He cannot visit his friend, as promised, because of the preparations for his [second] trip to Cairo (1870 Sept. 26). A short note invites Bicknell and his girls to meet him at Euston before the 2:10 train (1871 July 11).

The other four items include a note to Sir Charles Eastlake accepting his invitation (1864, Jan. 6); a letter to Mr. Buckton, sent with a book of British Ferns in which he may find his dark stem variety (1870 Aug. 8); a letter to Agnew, asking him which train he and his daughters will take from Euston, so he can send a "conveyance" to Harrow Weald station (1877 July 1). The letterhead bears the address of Goodall's mansion built the previous year. A short note asks that his picture "Raising the Maypole" in the Royal Academy be delivered to the bearer (n.d.).
