Dear Mr Whistler
I was so very sorry not to see more of you. -
I send you a copy of my son's Review - the National -
Do you ever condescend to write an article now? -
[p. 2] I wish you would consider the question of writing one for him. -
Could you not write one on the "International Exhibition" to appear in June number to be here say by May 18th or 20th. - It would be much valued & would serve to point the moral of our Exhibition. - The remuneration [p. 3] (as a matter of business) would be 20gs - say for 10 to 12 pages - The favour would be great if the remuneration is small.
