09Dec1872, Plans for Keble College Chapel

LONDON, Monday, December 9th, 1872.
—We dined at Portland Place, meeting the dear Keble couple, who showed off the plans of the Chapel, which are excellent. Mr. Gibbs is going to build out of his own pocket-£30,000. The plans are too odd (Butterfield) for me to be sure I altogether like them ; but there is to be a high-up row of windows with great space for mosaics below, which will have a capital effect.
