Dear Mr. Reid -

"La Dame au brodequin jaune[3]" - I suppose then that you may have the picture upon the first terms - that is cheque for £400 - four hundred pounds and we divide the difference when you sell the picture -

There is no time to write you more now, as this must go at once -

Very sincerely Yours

J McN. Whistler
