Drop-head title. Final page is blank. Sir John Cox [Coxe] Hippisley was one of the first managers of the Royal Institution and also served it as treasurer. He was a member of the Royal Society and the Society of Antiquaries and also served as a magistrate in Somerset. He was a proponent of Catholic Emancipation and secured a royal pension from George III for Henry Stuart, Cardinal York, destitute in France at the end of the 18th century. For Soane's associations with Hippisley see A.T. Bolton, The portrait of Sir John Soane, R.A. (London 1927), pp. 26--7, 99; in her biography John Soane: an accidental romantic (London 1999), Gillian Darley confirms that 'no man was to turn up with greater regularity throughout Soane's life than Coxe Hippisley (p. 49).
