Dear Mr Whistler,
If you will kindly reflect a moment you will see that it has not been in our [p. 2] power to hasten the matter. The day after we settled to have it & the Count I had the latter photographed at the Salon & I have done every thing possible to hurry it on - I believe we could have got a block satisfactory to you without Badoureau, but as you liked his work we sent it to him. You gave the other people the litho. chance first: you might give me the next. In any case I ask it as a favour begging you to look on my request in as friendly a light as possible.
[p. 3] I am wondering too when Mr Whibley will send his article. If you see him could you mention I was asking?
I am telling my friend he may keep the letter as an autograph. I assure you I was very careful to see nothing was
in in the little note, but I sent it to interest him & to bring him to do something if possible.
All the business letters you send are entirely sacred & personal to me alone.
[p. 4] Mrs Alfred Morrison & a Mrs Thornton (? or Thornhill) called at Goupils to-day & saw one or two of Pooles little drawings & the Blue Wave. The second lady is very much your admirer & seemed to know you but she is a stranger to us. They did not buy anything however
Yours very truly
D. C. Thomson
8. Mrs Thornton (? or Thornhill)
