[...] [the] whole thing in a nutshell -
What about the sale of Oscar's things in Tite Street? -
There is a little brown paper drawing that curiously enough I believe he bought at the sale of the White House when I was in Venice - one of the scrapings of the studio as usual - but I daresay pretty - I think Mrs White would like to have it -
You might look in and see what it might be had for -
J. McN. WHISTLER.
