Dear Sir

I am directed by Mr Whistler to send off to you the enclosed proof of his first new etching

He understood that you wished him to select for you anything that he should do

If you do not wish to keep it will you kindly return it by post in the same flat condition

The price is £10. 10. 0. and Mr Whistler calls it "Cameo No. 1[4]"

Mr Whistler meant to have written himself but is off to Paris in great haste

Yours Truly

William Bell.
