Paris. 110. Rue du Bac.

Sept, 2. 1892 -

Dear Mr Hanson -

I want to go to Messrs Durrant[2], the Press Cutting people - (they are close to you - 57. Holborn Viaduct) and pay them the enclosed cheque -

I don't know what my bill is - but they can give it to you with receipt on account -

Ask if they will send direct to the above address in Paris - and will they begin at once by sending now six copies of the "Pelican[3]" of August 20th and 6 of Sunday Times[4]. Aug 27th. - Say that I am very well pleased I only w [p. 2] with the way they serve me - and only object to the number of repetitions - Say that I wish they would see to this - That I do not want the same cutting sent over and over again - This they continuously do, not only when it is repeated in various papers but absolutely the same cutting - and sometimes even two or three of the same c[u]tting in one packet! -

I hope you take care of your health - and keep good hours -

Let me know of the Captain's[5] success -

Very Sincerely

J Mc N Whistler
