Dear Sir,

It is my pleasant duty to intimate that at a General Assembly of the Royal Scottish Academy held yesterday afternoon you were unanimously elected to the rank of Honorary Membership. This, the highest distinction the members of the Academy have it in their power to bestow they hope you will accept as a mark of their recognition of the high position you have made for yourself in Art.

I am,
Dear Sir,
Yours very truly,

George Hay,

Secretary

J. McNeill Whistler Esqr
