Dear Mr. Hardy:
Mr Le Patourel will see to the matter of the catalogue as you desire.
The Committee thought this morning that there might be a second room for water colors - this is now found to be impossible - therefore your second picture (just arrived) will be really rather a difficulty to us. And I am sure you will understand how it is that we cannot well find for it a proper place.
Very faithfully yours,
J. McNeill Whistler
