Dear Mrs Whistler
On my return from Salisbury this evening I find your kind note about the "Fête on the Sands". A hundred guineas is little enough for so charming a picture, and I will gladly take it at that price if you will let me remit the money at once from [p. 2] Boston, on my return, in case my London credit should run short before I sail next week. If Mr Whistler wishes to have the picture stay at the Exposition for the present it can of course be sent to me later.
My daughter went to Windsor yesterday, and to Salisbury to-day, and I am glad to say that she has stood the fatigue [p. 3] quite well.
Hoping that we may soon see you and Mr Whistler on our side of the Ocean
I am yours sincerely
E. W. Hooper

The notes on the envelope were written in at least three different hands. The first hand may be that of Ethel Whibley (1861-1920), née Philip, JW's sister-in-law [more], and is similar to that on #07515. The last (signed) is that of R. B. Philip. The envelope was used to store Hooper's letter and other letter drafts, and is not the original envelope in which Hooper's letter was posted.
