Notes:

Accompanied by a note, which reads: '19th Sept 1930. Dear Mr Charrington, Very many thanks for your letter and cheque. I will send you the print during the weekend. I am sorry to say I really have nothing else I can show you at present, though I hope to have several finished plates in the near future. I made my first attempt at etching exactly two years ago. For the first year with the exception of that self portrait all I did was very experimental. I did a few commissions for sketchy portraits - I will send you one or two to see - they are not meant to be taken seriously but such as they are. If you would care to accept them from me I should be very pleased. Recently I have been trying to work seriously on several plates - three are commissions for portraits - but I cannot just get them finished where they are. I hope your invitation will still be open and I will send them to you to see. Many thanks for your tips on packing prints I will bear it in mind. Yours very truly, F. H. Round.'
