Description: Palmer (Samuel, landscape painter and writer, 1805-81) Autograph Letter signed to Leonard Rowe Valpy, 4pp., 8vo, Furze Hill House, Red Hill, 11th December 1866, expressing great pleasure that Valpy has perceived what he is striving for in a picture, "it always makes a painter purr to find that a critic whose judgment he esteems has detected in his picture the latent motive, and if you felt that those weather beaten stones looked 'legendary' then I feel rewarded for much study spent in aiming at it", responding to Valpy's enquiry about a drawing of his of Tintagel, "I fancied when it went away that it was one of my best drawings but they say people are no judge of their own drawings", discussing Milton's supposed preference for Paradise Regained to Paradise Lost, mentioning the death of Toynbee and giving news of his wife's health, remains of former hinge attached, folds. ***Leonard Valpy (1825-84), Ruskin's solicitor and art collector..
