Dear Mr. Whistler,

I have received the small sample of the frame for the lithographs and am now only waiting for your selection of the subjects. Don't take any away, we want them all.

I enjoyed my visit to Lyme Regis very much indeed[.] I was glad to see you again and have a chat. Thank you very much indeed. I had a splendid drive to the Station in the coach [p. 2] and got up to Town very comfortably indeed. I think that is a charming little hotel[2] you are staying at.

I shall expect a letter from you tomorrow morning[.] It is alright about Weedon[3].

With kind regards
Yours most sincerely

Ernest G. Brown.

J. A. Whistler Esq
