1.  [July 1876/July 1878]
Dated by address, after Lindsey Row was renamed and renumbered as Cheyne Walk c. 1874 but before JW moved to the White House in 1878. The date '3 Feb 1889' written at top right in another hand is manifestly wrong: the signature is in the style used by JW only up to 1881.

2.  Walter Theodore Watts-Dunton
Walter Theodore Watts (later Watts-Dunton) (1832-1914), solicitor, novelist and poet [more].

3.  '3 Feb 1889'
Added in an unknown hand, in pencil (see also date note above).

4.  'Whistler'
Added in an unknown hand, in pencil.
