Dear Mr Whistler -
We have just received yours with enclosures for which many thanks.
The address of the Art - Club is The Glasgow Art Club. Bath St Glasgow. As for sending the Affidavits there I think it is pouring water on a drowned rat.
I think poor Ford is quite played out in Glasgow.
Many thanks for your information about the Chicago fair.
If you hear any thing more definite you might let me know. The questions I wished to ask you were about Chicago & as to whether you thought it worth my while [p. 2] to run over there &c. but I daresay that will keep till I see you again which I hope shall be in September.
with compliments to Mrs Whistler
You don't say any thing about Heseltine! I think you would enjoy a day down there.
