1.  [20/21 March 1902]
The postmark is missing suggesting that this may be a draft and may never have been sent in this form. It is probably a response to Guthrie's telegraph and letter conveying the news that JW had been elected an Honorary Member of the Royal Scottish Academy (see Guthrie to JW, [19 March 1902], #01875, and 20 March 1902, #01877).

2.  James Guthrie
James Guthrie (1859-1930), landscape and portrait painter [more].

3.  MsWd
This was written on a telegraph form in an unknown hand, probably not that of JW.
