FH describes him as 'the genial librarian of Windsor', by which I take it he means Windsor Castle. At one of Sir Henry Thompson's 'octave' dinners, Holmes politely invited FH to inspect the collection, but 'I would have accepted eagerly had he not first talked to me of his water color sketches, which also could be seen from time to time gracing the anemic walls of the [Royal] Academy'.
