SCOTT, Sir George Gilbert (1811-1878). Architect.
Autograph Letter Signed to A Bruce Joy, 1 page 8vo on black-edged paper (repair to the margin), no place, 13 October 1875. Suggesting Mr Phené Spiers or his son, G.S. Scott though stating that 'I really do not know who to name to you'.

Presumably the recommendation was for architectural work. The architect Richard Phené Spiers (1838-1916) was in the early years of his successful career, working in the offices of Sir Digby Wyatt and William Burges. Gilbert Scott's eldest son, also George, had been in private practice since 1863.
