I find that the picture was sent, & it is only the name that was wanted - it is - "Rio Janeiro Harbour Sunset[5]["] - I should like to know what price was put on, because I wanted to put a good deal on as I do not much want to sell it.

I hope there will be [p. 2] no mistake about the name. I always exhibit under the name of J. Ramsay, & do not wish my real name known.
