Dear Mr Whistler
This is not yet to hand but they propose to let me have it to day -
Pennell has been here & wants to start on this. I have told him that he must submit to you what he writes -
Notice to papers
This appears in Times, [p. 2] & Morning Post (emasculated) & D. News - Here is the circular which accompanies the Invitation Card to the other lithographs - Trust Goulding for blowing his own trumpet. But we shall go one better -
You did not quite understand this. It is a flag to hang from our battlements.
I am afraid in this weather that white would look dingy in a day - So will you
look think of something else.
Marcus B Huish
