July 19. 1887

Dear Mr. Whistler:

When I was in New York in June I saw Miss Martin[2], who called on Messrs. Harper with reference to your "Ten O'Clock[3]". I don't know if she has seen you or written to you.

Are matters in such form that we can arrange for its publication in America?

Yours truly

J. R. Osgood

J. McNeill Whistler Esq
