Feb. 21st 1896.

Dear Mr. Whistler,

David[3] sent some lithos; several of which I admire very much.

I will send cheque for 250/-/- next post, as I find tomorrow is a legal holiday (Washington's[4] Birthday) & I cannot get a draft, so keep up your spirits.

I sent for Stanford White[5] but he has not shown up so far.

I like send
The Steps[6] - Lyme Regis - 3
Little Doorway -  "    "  - 3
The manager's window - 3
Priest's house - Rouen - 3


[p. 2] This makes a dozen.

I do not know what David has ordered, but I can use the foregoing if you will kindly send at once. Also please write as before, the title on the back of the prints. Whistlerites like it.

In great haste,
Yours Sincerely,

E. G. Kennedy.

[p. 3] P. S. Perhaps you might send me a letter à propos of "Carmen[7]" that I can show to Mr. Pope[8], that is, if you feel like it and think it best.
