TELEGRAMS, - BOUSSOD, LONDON.
2 June 1892.
We found that Mr Palmer had suddenly gone to Paris & probably to the Barbadienne sale & we wired to you that if you could see him he might be induced to take the 'Falling Rocket' which Mrs Palmer likes immensely. In any case we shall see them tomorrow & try our [p. 2] very utmost to sell this picture.
We do not like to be able to sell other peoples examples while we do not sell your own & in fact it is hardly fair. But what can we do? It is really only a question of price & we ought to be able to get you £600 net for this.
Ruskin books to hand - many thanks.
Enclosed is from Geo Thomson this morning in answer to ours stirring him up.
Will write tomorrow
Yours vy truly
