Dear Mr Whistler
I was afraid that you wd be upset by the news - & I am also on re examination afraid that you
r are in the right as to the locality whereat the damage was done - My first reason for [p. 2] putting it on French soil was that the seals was a used were most artistic ones, but these I am inclined on further examination to put down as yours
I think that we can get them mended so that they will never be noticed - ie. if we put them in Grisbrooks hands - who can do anything.
I did not in my last express to you my thanks for all the trouble you have expended upon the plates, as a rule the ordinary [p. 3] Artist tires at the end of a tirage but you seem to gird up your loins for fresh triumphs. Long may this be instinct [sic] in you for so long as it is it will show that vitality flows in every fibre of your most virile body
I am Sincy ys.
