C. Lungley, employee of the Fine Art Society, London dealers [more].

2.  We enclose you cheque £20
Payment probably for etchings from Mr Whistler's Etchings of Venice, 1880 (the first 'Venice Set') (K. 183-189, 191-195). (excat 5). See JW's indignant reply to Marcus Bourne Huish (1843 - d.1921), barrister, writer and art dealer, Director of the Fine Art Society [more], [17 June 1884?], #01172; JW was annoyed that Lungley had enclosed a cheque for £20 rather than paying in guineas.

3.  Mr Brown
Ernest George Brown (1853 or 1854-1915), assistant manager at the Fine Art Society [more].
