To the Editor:
—A portrait of Edward VI, the "boy-king," who died of consumption, painted by William Streates, pupil of Holbein, was sold to an American collector about 1902, according to L. P. Mark in an address "Art and Medicine," delivered in 1906. This portrait suggested advanced phthisis and I wonder if it is known where the portrait is now. Some of your readers may have been interested in the subject and located it. Most of the portraits of Edward VI do not show evidence of the disease, which makes the Streates portrait particularly interesting.
