Right: ‘not so much all pink and red as here’; ‘sky here darker blue with bright golden star to balance dove opposite’; ‘all angel window’; ‘wreath of shamrock to surround lozenge shape shield as book plate but leaving out ormonde knots as this will go under the coat larger and on its own’; ‘red cross shield’; ‘inscription for window if lettering gets too squashed up more space could be had by lengthening space for inscrip.’ Bottom: ‘Title of subject: “He shall give His Angels charge over thee...” at base of window instead of flowers’; ‘Scale 1”=1’;’ ‘Clarke Studios Dublin’
