|Copy letter from Francis Alexander Towle, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Dr. Pietro Capparoni, Rome [Italy]
|2 May 1928
|Replies that the Royal Society can give no definite answer to prove the portrait of [Marcello] Malpighi is by A. M. de Tobar. Cites source as an old printed catalogue that only goes back 100yrs. Acknowledges that de Tobar could not have been the artist if, as Dr. Pietro Capparoni claims, he was born in 1678.
