    Clive was an elected member of the British Parliament serving for 16 years. There are, however, records of visits to the Artists' Club at Slaughter's coffee-house, and he was much concerned in the promotion of those schemes for the establishment of an academy of arts which preceded the foundation of the Royal Academy. Joshua was enabled by education, ability, and inclination to move all his adult life with ease and distinction in literary and learned circles.

On the 18th Sunday Reynolds, as president, formally submitted the list of officers, council, visitors, and professors, which was approved under the sign-manual. He inscribed Lady Cockburn's drapery in a similar way.
