Dear Sir -

Kindly have the portrait of Lady Archibald Campbell[2] - "La Dame au Brodequin Jaune" - packed and sent at once to
Alexander Reid[3] Esq.
227. West George Street.

I shall be writing to you in a day or two about various matters -

Very faithfully Yours

J McN. Whistler

D. C. Thomson Esq.


I wish you would send a line to Mr Grau[5] and make him bring you down the small frames that I had for the oil sketches[6] that were hanging in the dining room - five in all I believe - And will you kindly send them on to me through your house in your next case -
