TELEGRAMS, - BOUSSOD, LONDON.

Dec 14th 1892.

Dear Sir,

A young Scottish Etcher Mr Frank Laing[2] has produced a number of clever plates & he has asked us if we could let you see them.

We have sent the folio containing them to your address in Paris (through our Rue Chaptal house) & we would ask you [p. 2] to look at them & if you are sufficiently interested in them Mr Laing would call on you. He is studying in Paris at present

We know Mr Laing only very slightly so please do not go out of your way unless the artistic [merit?] of the etchings merit it.

We should be very glad to know what you would like done about the Album circulars which we want to issue now.

Yours very truly
