Catalogue Note

The author and politician Richard Monckton Milnes, first Baron Houghton (1809–1885) was a long-time patron and friend of Patmore. The poet dedicated Tamerton Church-Tower to him. Milnes was instrumental in securing Patmore his appointment at the British Museum that allowed him the freedom to write, and the two worked closely together on a number of projects.
