Dear Mr. Reid -

How much? -

Now I will at once send for the picture, "Firewheel[3]", if you can give me an assurance of your good chance of sale - - The price you know is always 1000 gs. - Your man has doubtless seen the picture itself, or knows the photograph -

The "Firewheel" is in America, but if you feel sure about it your purchaser I will cable for it -

Let me know by return - and address to me
Savoy Hotel - Victoria Embankment
London -

[p. 2] With kindest regards
Very truly Yrs

J McNeill Whistler
