Feb 26 1885

Dear Mr Whistler

I send you with this the rough statement of accounts[2]. I will send you a proper formal one made out by our accountant directly everything is absolutely in. The Baroness[3] hasn't paid - shall I worry her? of course I have put her seats in the account as if they were[4] paid for - - I have also of course credited Mr Godwin's[5] seats [p. 2] and await your instructions about them.

I have been trying to get off that £2 - 2 deposit - and at last have got it reduced to £1 - 1!

The World adverts voucher isn't in yet - but I enclose the other receipts. Part of the "Truth" advertisements were paid for "cash" in the petty cash a/cs.

I am just going to the station so excuse the writing

sincerely yrs

Helen Lenoir
