Description: Fry (Roger) Three autograph letters signed to Lawrence W. Hodson, 8pp., 8vo and 4to, 1902, 1905, and n.d., one naming three art critics who should be invited to the Wolverhampton exhibition, "I feel that the exhibition establishes a kind of nucleus of orthodox opinion. I should like to see it crystallized in some way by the formation of a society, but I fear the difficulties are insuperable"; another asking for Hodson's help in acquiring Whistler's 'Nocturne' for the nation; the third with much information about Botticelli's 'Venus', written in response to an interpretation of the painting sent to him by Hodson, folded.
