TELEPHONE NO. 3779.

Dear Whistler.

Just received a note from Chapman[2] in which he says that on his return to Liverpool on Tuesday or Wednesday (he writes from Brighton) he will send the pictures off -

I think this will still be in time - as we have some other pictures for [p. 2] Munich[3] which have not yet been fetched by the agents.

[In?] haste

Walter Dowdeswell.
