Dear Mr Whistler,
The parcel containing eight proofs of "The Beggars" and six of "The Doorway" is pierced right through, nearly in the centre with what appears to be a large pair of scissors. It has been done in trying to put the strings through to do the parcel up after it was examined. The parcels [p. 2] were beautifully done up and there is no excuse for it. It is a grievous thing as they are the most lovely impressions.
Yours very truly
Ernest G. Brown.
J. A. M. Whistler Esq
