Notes

- Alan Cole. Sir John Everett Millais, 1st Baronet, PRA (8 June 1829 – 13 August 1896) was an English painter and illustrator who was one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Millais' personal life has also played a significant role in his reputation. His wife Effie was formerly married to the critic John Ruskin, who had supported Millais' early work. The annulment of the marriage and her marriage of Millais have sometimes been linked to his change of style.

I believe that the addressee should be Mr Roberson of Robersons subcontractors 1828-1884, whom Millais used on a number of occasions; Ophelia, 1851-2,, The Prescribed Royalist , The Order of Release, My Second Sermon and Benjamin Disraeli, 1881.
