Dear Mr. Whistler,
I enclose a cheque for £45. 11. 0 for the etchings I bought and the printing less £13. 10. 0 for the incense burner. Please send us a receipt.
We are in great trouble at not being able to make up a set of Venice etchings. Could you let us have a few proofs of the Nocturne at once, and also a few of Battersea and Putney Bridges[.] We are losing the
half sale of these etchings through not having any stock. You promised about [p. 2] Christmas time that you would let us have a good supply. We should really be much obliged if you would let us have a few more.
Ernest G. Brown.
