CHELSEA.

Dear Mr Heinemann -

It would be nice of you to let me replenish my Bankers account with guineas from the Gentle Art[4] - now, my dear Publisher, now[5]!

Also I have an idea! Something amazing! - but [p. 2] my pocket should always be full - or my golden eggs are addled! -

Notes:

1.  [1890/1892?]
Dated by the address and signature. The envelope was sent by hand so there is no postmark. The date 1892, added in another hand, is probably incorrect, since JW moved to Paris then.

2.  William Heinemann
William Heinemann (1863-1920), publisher [more].

3.  '[ca. 1892]'
Date added in another hand.

4.  Gentle Art
Whistler, James McNeill, The Gentle Art of Making Enemies, London and New York, 1890.

5.  now
Double-underlined.
