James Whistler Esq,
8 Fitzroy Street,
Dear Mr Whistler,
I have received the beautiful little picture & will do my best to sell it. I did not intend to nibble anything off the cheque, but why add a large piece on. You just put the picture a little beyond what it is possible to get. Do not you think 600 guineas is enough to ask? Please let me know. 'Don't begrudge the poor little 10%'
Ernest G. Brown
'I wrote to Mrs Leveson Gower and she has answered'
'Excuse a typewritten letter'
'Don't begrudge ... 10%' and 'I wrote to ... letter' is written in Brown's hand; the rest is typewritten.
The '7000 ... 60' calculation is a pencil note in JW's hand.
