Temple, undated. 2 pp. 7 x 4½ inches, folds, in good condition. John Cameron MacDonald, engineer and later manager of The Times, became almoner to the Times Crimea Fund. On her arrival at Scutari, Florence Nightingale embarked on radical changes to the medical arrangements. The public funds were hedged with bureaucratic procedures, and she had to meet costs partly from her own funds and partly through donations made by MacDonald from the Times fund. She and MacDonald evolved a close working relationship, and the fund became a powerful weapon against official incompetence. As a result the newspaper was subjected to a campaign of vilification from elements in the establishment, who either denied that things were as bad as reported or imputed base motives for the paper's involvement.

1 February 1831. Card 3 x 4½ inches, some light dust soiling, red wax seal (‘M’). George Macfarren (1788–1843), playwright and theatre manager. In February 1831 Macfarren took over the management of the theatre in Tottenham Street, which he called the Queen's Theatre, in honour of Queen Adelaide, and here he remained until July of the following year, producing, among numerous other works, The Danish Wife (1831) and a dramatic version of Handel's Acis and Galatea, for which Cipriani Potter wrote additional accompaniments. Macfarren seems to have laid particular stress on accuracy of detail and naturalness in staging the plays which he produced. Macfarren was the first to suggest the formation of the Handel Society. In 1841 he became editor and proprietor of the Musical World.

Oxford, 21 August 1844. 4 pp. 7 x 4 inches, traces of former mounting at centre fold. Robert Shelton Mackenzie (1809-1880), editor, biographer (including a Life of Charles Dickens), miscellaneous writer. He contributed biographies to ‘The Georgian Era’ (1832–4), and was engaged on the staff of several London newspapers. ‘Professor Buckland’s opinion was this “I consider it quite impossible that the Tunnel can now fall in. The quantity of water which each tidal change brings over it is immense, but then it does not strike the work, so as to injure it, but comes on it & goes from it gradually. I think the Tunnel may last for a thousand years. In fact (he added) until the materials themselves decay.” The tunnel was opened to the public on 25 March 1843.
