William Godwin's Diary


There were several exhibitions on this date, including the fifteenth annual exhibition of the Society of Painters in Oil and Watercolours and a new exhibition of Mr. Town's pictures on velvet. This was also the opening day of an exhibition of Rubens copies, although Godwin is specific about attending the 'Rubens Exhibition' in his diary entries for the 28th May and the 2nd June of 1819.
