Notes:

1.  [July/August 1893]
Dated from reference to Paimpol and the Côtes du Nord, which the Whistlers visited in the summer of 1893; see for example #02005, dated [17 August 1893] and written by JW from the Côtes du Nord.

2.  sketches of profiles
Sketchbook (M.1363): these sketches may be by Beatrix Whistler (1857-1896), née Beatrice Philip, artist [more], although the other drawings look more like JW's work.
