THE following gentlemen have recently consented to become patrons of the Cheap Cottages Exhibition :—The Earl of Harewood, Lord Hylton, R. C. Munro-Ferguson, Esq., M.P., Colonel H. J. Hope-Edwards, Hugh Morrison, Esq., W. R. Malcolm, Esq., and Christopher Tumor, Esq. The total amount of the donations received up to March 2nd is .2.807. Though the result achieved up till now is encouraging, those responsible for the organisa- tion of the Exhibition are most anxious to see the subscription list still 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.

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, 347 Birkbeck Bank Chambers, Holborn, W.C.
