    Presentation of a paper to the 'New London Archaeological Institute' on the old city of London. Reports that officers of the institute 'have been compelled to assign conjectural characters and destinations to the several buildings and works discovered [...] belonging to a 'bygone and barbarous race'. Conclusions include the attribution of remains of a 'low and singularly unsightly range of building' containing paintings 'crowded together in low close rooms', to the National Gallery.
