More than eight years have now passed since my husband's death, and during that time I have been sent occasional comments, generally made by foreigners and in their own newspapers, which have expressed surprise that he had not been honoured by a public memorial. I would therefore like to explain that not long after his death the President of the Royal Academy, Sir Edward Poynter, took the initial steps to form a committee to consider this matter, h.r.h. The Prince of Wales, our present King, having signified his willingness that his name should be connected with the scheme.
