14, BUCKINGHAM STREET,
STRAND, W. C.

Dear Mr. Whistler,

I add a line to my letter of this morning to say that Mrs. Anderson[2] has just been here. She says that the etchings were sent only yesterday, though only yesterday Mr. Page[3] assured Joseph[4] they had been sent and received some time before. They are your etchings. The only two prints in the exhibition that do not belong to you are Mr. Heinemann's[5] proof and Mr. Pennell's lithograph. The things sent by Colnaghi[6] were, Joseph imagines, returned weeks [p. 2] ago, as they should have been to the firm in Pall Mall.

He gave to Mrs. Anderson to-day the few duplicate proofs he and Mrs. Whibley[7] had selected. As the Studio was closed, he did not know to whom to return them. Everything of yours is now at the Company of the Butterfly's or on the walls at the Exhibition[8].

Joseph hopes now that everything is satisfactorily settled, and I am

Very Sincerely Yours

E. R. Pennell
