Descripción

Four page letter, written entirely in the hand of and signed by John Keble. Written from Hursley Vicarage and dated October 14, 1857, it reads: My dear Sir, I thank you much for sending me the Inscription, + for mentioning the Window. It has occurred to me that for the subject or one of the subjects of the latter there might be something appropriate, if one could get it properly treated, in the Prophet Isaiah having his lips touched by a coal of fire from the alter in the hand of an angel c. vi. 6.7. But one is almost afraid to mention it - it would require such superior skill + feeling. If your artist could submit his design before execution to some such person as Mr. Butterfield, I should say, from experience, that he would be doing on of the best things he could for his work. I should wish to give a little (I cannot afford more) to the windows - will you kindly put me down for a guinea? I will you believe me, dear Sir, yours very truly, [signed] J Keble. I have mentioned it to Professor Reed." The Butterfiled referred to in the letter is undoubtedly William Butterfield (1814 - 1900) architect. Keble was an English clergyman and poet. J. H. Newman later called Keble's sermon of July 14 1833 as the beginning of the Oxford Movement. From 1836, he was the priest of a small Parish of Hursley, Hampshire. Three years after his death, Keble College at Oxford was established (Butterfield built the chapel). N° de ref. de la librería 005488
