Dear Sir -

I find the little Catalogue[4] you have sent me really quite perfect - I mean in appearance - Far from me to know whether the text be correct for the critics - McNeill, by the way should have his two l.s - I use them both and in the midst of things cannot well do without either!

[p. 2] But the little book is very smart - and you have carried out in detail all that I wanted with delightful inteligence [sic] -

The later quotations you have added very prettily - and that is excellent - for I may have more -

Meanwhile I am so pleased that I wish you to put 50. copies aside for me and kindly post me half a dozen here

I will send you a cheque directly I hear from you,

And I am Yours truly

J. McNeill Whistler
