Henry Holland to Faraday   Undated

L Brook Street | May 13th

My dear Faraday

Will you let me ask you to give a place in your portfolio to a print (from a portrait by Phillips1) not a very good one, I believe; but which nevertheless I would fain hope may be acceptable to you from an old friend.

Ever, my dear Faraday, your’s | affectionately H. Holland

This portrait of Holland by the painter Henry Wyndham Phillips (1820–1868, ODNB) is mounted opposite this letter.
