Scope and Content

Three letters from the painter F. Ernest Jackson, member of the Art Workers' Guild, who painted a portrait of Margaret Pilkington in 1926. Two letters are from the 1920s, the third is undated. The 1920s letters are illustrated, the second describing a comic trip to Liverpool with Mr Peach. In the third letter, Jackson writes to Pilkington about religious matters, the creative spirit and the reorganization of the church. He states that this 'would make it a sin to produce shoddy work'.
