THE FINE ART SOCIETY,
148, NEW BOND ST. W.
14th Mar 1879
My dear Sir,
When I wrote to you this morning I had not heard from Mr Dowdeswell that you had been here.
Many thanks to you for sending for my inspection the Putney Bridge - Its very good but would only go down with the educated in etchings of [p. 2] whom we dont encounter many whereas [the] Hogarth plate will appeal to many who like a clump of old houses & dont care for a tumble down bridge -
So I am afraid that I must deny myself - & say no -
If you publish it I should like to have a copy at 6 guineas less the usual percentage
Marcus B Huish
