Dear Mr. Huish.

I really will try & find you the couple of proofs you want[3] -

How is it that neither you nor Mr. Brown[4] ever appear in Paris? -

[p. 2] Business I am told is desperate in London? - so I hear on all sides -

Very sincerely

J. McN. Whistler

I suppose you don't want to buy any lithographs[5]? 2 & 3 gs a proof, & 15 per cent discount.
