Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Manuscript account in RHC's hand on a small slip of paper headed"Kearsley - All's Well that Ends Well. March 17 - Copper, March 26 Etching" and ending,"Making etching from Picture by Stothard."

Manuscript account in RHC's hand headed"Expenses attending the completion of the Pilgrims, from the etching as left by Mr. Schiavonetti. The plate was begun on the 20th Sept. 1810." Much importance is given by THC to this account, considering that a careful analysis of the days and the sums proved that his father had the idea of engraving the scene from Chaucer before Blake.
