Dear Mr Whistler,

"Finette[2]"

We have seen our amateur[3] who in all probability will take the 2 Proofs of "Finette" - Kindly send them per post as he may be absent from home before the end of the week & he is anxious to see them before he goes -

The Jubilee[4]
& other etchings we shall write you about on an early day - Two of our amateurs, not having seen the etchings here, have purchased them elsewhere -

Your Etchings in our hands

We should be glad if you would leave these till the first week in January. and wWe have an amateur, who is away from home, who wants to see them.

Yours faithfully

Craibe Angus & Son.
