Dear Mr Whistler

As the "Carlyle[2]" has gone to Glasgow my father[3] thinks that you should let him have a cheque for the balance we agreed [vis?] - namely £235 - 0 - 0 when we consented to let you have the picture: and which [p. 2] act on our part decidedly furthered the placing of the work.

Hoping to receive the cheque very soon

I remain
Yours faithfully

Algernon Graves

J. McN Whistler Esq
