Tax amount of subscriptions and fees received up to April 20th for the Cheap Cottages Exhibition is 41,122, besides 4420 promised to the Prizes Fund, making a total of 41,542. The Earl of Meath, and Sir William Vincent have consented to become patrons of the Exhibition. Though the result achieved up till now is encouraging, those responsible for the organisation of the Exhibition are most anxious to see the subscription list till further augmented in order that the prizes may be on an adequate scale. We trust, therefore, that readers of the Spectator will help the work by donations. The following sum has recently been r( coifed through the Spectator :— Richard H. Watt ... £1 1 0

We are asked by the "County Gentleman" to state that Mr. Wilbraham V. Cooper is the organising secretary of the Exhibi- tion, and that all inquiries in regard to the Cheap Cottages Exhibition made by Builders and others who propose to exhibit should be addressed to the Secretary, Cheap Cottages Exhibition, 847 Birkbeck Bank Chambers, Holborn, W.C. We are also informed that Messrs. Thorne and Walston! (17 Gracechurch Street, B.C.) have most generously consented to act as honorary solicitors to the Exhibition.
