Dear Mr Whistler
However the plates [sic] a good one & I dont want you to grumble at us as being people who beat you down & so I will get you a check for one hundred pounds tomorrow. [p. 2] [B]ut we must have all the proofs save two & you must engage not to sell any -
There is a board [meeting] today at which I can get you a check for the £124. 13. 6 if you will let me
have know by five o'clock - & you shall have it without fail tomorrow when you call -
