Letter of Arthur Dixon to John Joseph Cotman, 21 May 1834
Dixon has sailed from Thorpe to Norwich with Miles Edmund Cotman and Freeman [probably the artist and picture-dealer mentioned in Kitson, The Life of JSC, pp. 105, 110, 143; William Philip Barnes Freeman]. He has put together a basket of flowers for London. He recounts a recent evening's entertainment when he received visitors who were joined by [Thomas] Lounde. Afterwards, he and Edmund walked back to Thorpe. The Cotmans' dog [Carlo] has died. Lounde has made twenty-two new drawings. Among other incidents, Charles Geldart picked some flowers that Dixon was growing.
